I'm trying to decide between a late 2013 model and mid 2014 macbook pro with the gt750 gpu. I'm not familiar with macs, so is the difference between the two generations that significant for the extra $200?

Some of the 2013 ones only have 4GB of RAM which could be an issue. Other than that probably not worth the $200 for minor upgrades imo. Depends on which ones specifically you are looking at (endry level vs high end, screen size, etc).

As far as I can tell they are the same aside from one having a slightly better CPU

Watch out with macbook pro

i have one and it heats a lot
its bad for gaming and extended video use.

however, it's a great computer for anything non-related to Gaming. (school is best for)

A good friend of mine own first one you listed above, and he's regreting buying it because of its overheating while playing any games. If i would be you, i'd better buy any other laptop for the same (lower) amount of money, or just build an awesome rig. It doesn't really worth spending 2k dollars on a laptop thats overheating while playing 7 years old game imo.
TLDR: What #5 said.

Turn up the fan. I have a Early 2011, that I use for work and games, no issues.
