Which MBP to get? Mainly tf2...?

    I play quite a substantial amount of tf2, dota and perhaps Starcraft 2, so I was wondering what kind of MBP it would take to comfortably run these games on Med-High settings at 40-60fps?

    I was thinking of the 15", but not sure of which customizations to add...

    Some advice please? =) I don't think I will be playing any other games besides these three in the near future...

    TF2 "plays" on my Macbook 13, but it requires a special configuration to be playable. Half life 2 plays fine. Starcraft 2 is laggy even in 1v1 games.

    Absolutely no way you can play these games on medium settings on a 13 inch.

    edit: my post refers to in OS X performance

    Gamers should always get dedicated gpu's. Unless you need to have a 13".

    I would have gone for a 15" one just for the larger resolution but that's just me.

    If you want to game and want a MBP--15" all the way. If you have the money get the upgraded video card as well.

    Windows performance is average. If you want better gaming, look for the 15"
