    Heavy duty games like GTA V aren't even gonna start up on something like that. If you want something thats powerful and still good looking get a Razer Blade.

    I bought a $3200 macbook and tried to run fortnite and it isn't optimized for mac at all and won't run without severe lag like most heavy duty games (This is the macbook ;pro fully upgraded btw). I had to return the laptop since it literally can't run jack shit, I wouldn't buy a mac for gaming tbh, especially if you are doing video editing which requires lots of processing power. Additionally, an intel i5 isn't really a powerful processor, there are much better i7s out if you want to be doing processor intensive stuff. Tbh you should just go to pcpartpicker.com and build your own computer, mine is 5 years old and can run every game perfectly, I haven't even had to upgrade it yet. Lmk if u got questions :p

    Thanks for the responses, I "luckily" couldn't buy the Mac because my card didn't go through, but will start getting my parts asap and will start making my PC as @Frostystorm1 said, I've been wanting this for years, and now that it's summer, and I have money...time to start tightening the screws lol <3

    PS> Will post a picture of my work done when I am done :D
