    You weren't making a point. You were just saying nonsense things. 2560 x 1600 is a resolution so high you can't play any games with it? What year are you talking about? 1999? Then yes. 2012? Go check a benchmarks website if you don't believe me.

    I WAS making a point though. No one buys a Mac, especially a 13.3-inch, to play games in a serious way. Just doesn't happen, unless the person doesn't know anything about hardware performance (like you). So no trolling here.

    At least they followed a standard this time with the resolution, and didn't just make one up.

    Updates are pretty much what was expected, not surprised to see the mac mini drop the discrete gpu.
