Hi everybody, I am looking for a laptop with a i7 and the best GPU possible which is able to run OSX and windows at the same time with one as a virtual machine. I have tried looking around and all I find seem to be compromises between performance and efficiency. I dont give a monkeys about efficiency. Please help me find a laptop

from all the options so far the origin pc and xmg are the most powerful ones since they are running desktop cpus thus giving them big edge on cpu performance. the 4790k is extremely powerful even for a desktop cpu and by far the best option out of all since most of the other cpus (like 4790T) are butchered power saving cpus that are made for long battery life and less heat.

Thank you both, these are exactly the type of laptop i am after. What would be the practical difference between a i7 4790k and a 4790T?

The i7 4790T is a heavily underclocked 4790 and also has a very low TDP. Where as the 4790K is unlocked and has the full TDP of a normal desktop CPU.

I'm not sure about mac drivers, but windows drivers will certainly work.
