    As the next MBP will likely have USB c + tb3 and a quad core CPU, I'm thinking it would be great hardware to use with my razer core- if it could ever run Windows with proper device support.

    I haven't used a Mac since OSX came out, and I am not informed on the situation with running Windows on them currently, but I do know that macbooks have a long history of being compatible with eGPUs.

    Welcome any informed conjecture regarding this.

    Macs don't have proper cooling or driver support to make sense as Windows only and/or gaming machines.

    If you want to primarily run Windows get a Windows system. If you want to primarily run OS X get a Mac.

    Running OS X in conjunction with Windows virtualized works very well, bootcamp on the other hand lacks on the drivers side which impacts overall performance.

    Agreed with the above. You buy a Mac because of OSX. Replacing that with another OS is a bit silly.

    He is smiling, so I'd say he's not that serious.

    I have never heard of Macbooks being compatible with external GPUs.
