Best MacBook Pro Specs

I am going to start creating 360 videos, but I need the specs for a MacBook Pro. I know I need at least 8 Gigs of Ram and an i7 quadcore, but does anyone know if I can order a MacBook Pro with an Nvidia graphics card built in. Any recommendations on a computer that will offer real time rendering for about $2000 American dollars would be appreciated. I prefer Mac, but would be open to PC if that brings the price down a bit.

Also, is Mac's graphics card comparable to the Nvidia? Thanks for any help! :)

Thanks for the reply mercredi!

How many gigs does your graphics card have and does the fan start every time you render your videos. I find that the fan is always going whenever I render a 1 minute video. I am also using a Radeon card.

I returned my MacBook Pro. I got an MSI Dominator Pro with 32 Gigs of Ram and an 8 gig graphics card.

It renders faster with no heating an no fans blazing. AND IT COST THE SAME THING!

I'm about due for a new MacBook Pro. My current one is 10 years old and still runs well, but it can't run an OS beyond El Capitan and is starting to show it's age: bad battery, DVD drive problems, track pad issues. It's also a LOT heavier than the new models so it's a pain to carry it around. write my essay for me.
