need a good gaming laptop that is a mac. Not interested in desktop, or other brands.

anyone know of any good gaming macs that can handle demanding games in their best settings?

What you are asking for doesn't exist.

Why does it have to be a macbook? You're going to have to throw on Windows to play most games anyway. While macbooks are good laptops, most of the price isn't going into processing power.

The Macbook Pros are about as good as you can get. Getting one with a dedicated graphics card (that still sucks in comparison) is even more overpriced. It's just not good to get a Macbook for gaming.

If you want the best of both worlds, get a Windows laptop, and google the rest. It's not all that reliable though.

Joke topic suspected. If you recommend Mac laptops as in plural, you've recommended both of them.

There's no such thing as a good gaming mac laptop especially since apple raised the prices even more.
You have to spend a minimum of $2600 to get the only mac with a dedicated gpu and it's only a measly 750m. An $800 laptop will blow every single macbook out of the water for gaming. You could max it out all the way spending near $5000 and the $800 laptop will still perform better.

'Average' is what you'll get at best, which would obviously be the $2000 dollar MacBook Pro; the one with a GPU for modelling and video editing and not gaming (Which you could say was present in the earlier models with the 650m)

My bad, there's a 750m one I didn't notice it, I thought the Iris was discrete. So that'll be $2500.

If you want to game, it's better to build one and install Hackintosh...
