Which macbooks are good in gaming?
Which macbooks can be use as everyday laptop and for some gaming throughout the day? I prefer lighter laptop, but I don't know whether macbook air (mid 2012) is good for gaming or not. Considering the specs itself. So I looked up onto retina 13inch (late 2012), but it uses Intel HD 4000 which I don't really knows its performance for gaming. Retina 15inch is quite big so it's not as portable as macbook air or retina 13inch. So what I need is something like quick comparison between macbooks performance that include macbook air 13inch and macbook pro retina for both 13 and 15 inch. Thanks in advance

The macbook pro retina 15" has the latest 650m 1Gb graphics card built in which will play games like left4dead/battlefield 3/call of duty on a high setting with a decent fps :) the Intel HD4000 is really only for standard everyday use. If you want to game on a macbook you're gonna need to get the 15" retina, or play games in a lower quality to ensure a good FPS.
