College/Gaming Laptop Help


Feb 9, 2013
I'm going to college soon and need a laptop. I have a very good PC for gaming but need a laptop for classes and such. The thing is I would still very much like to be able to game on my laptop. I most likely won't often and of course it won't be the same as if I were on my PC but still... I know there are many people out there that live by Apple and others that hate them but I've been looking into the Mac book Pro. Any thoughts or experiences on how those do with games? And yes I know that the Mac OS in itself can be an issue. Other than Macs does anyone have other suggestions as to a good laptop that isn't too heavy and easy to carry around campus but can still run games decently are? Any suggestions are welcome! As of now I will say there is no budget since I am not sure what that is at the moment. Thanks!

Edit: Also, would I be better off just forgetting about gaming on the laptop, saving a bit of money, and making the search much easier?
