Run your game at 1440x900, it'll look entirely native. The new macbook pro's specs are the exact same as the Alienware M14x CPU and GPU wise. It'll game pretty good. And movies will be this res soon enough. 4K TV's are coming.
Still not that strong, especially gaming on a mac where you lose a couple frames with the same hardware in gaming... I have nothing against mac's people love them, they have great customer service (which you pay out the ass for) but at the end of the day in my eyes it is a $2200 facebook machine with an awesome screen you wont use for anything that is worth the price. Good luck downloading those movies with a bandwidth cap because lets face it disks aren't going to last long. Moving up to that res in movies will surely be the end of the disk. Not to mention they had 1080p televisions long before there was any 1920x1080 content.
Don't get me wrong it is an impressive machine it just isn't practical.
