My computers are all out of date: two 6 year old Compaqs (desktop and cheap laptop) and a 3 year old Mac mini (2GHz Intel Core Duo, 4GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9400 with 256MB VRAM). I've wanted to get a MacBook Pro for quite some time, but haven't been able to justify the price since the others handled all my needs.
Now, the specs I found for the newest 17" MacBook Pro, from the Apple Store and this site: http://apcmag.com/ap...pec-by-spec.htm
- 2.3GHz Quad-core i7-2720QM
- AMD Radeon HD 6750M
- 8GB 1333MHz RAM
I know equivalent PC laptops can be much cheaper, and everyone says Macs are overpriced. The price doesn't bother me because I like Macs, and I've been saving for a long time. If the hardware isn't beefy enough though, I'll have to look into a PC.
So, in your experience, would a MacBook Pro with Windows 7 be good for game dev?
