Is the best Win8 PC still a mac?

Hey guys! I am thinking about buying a 15" macbook pro retina for school this year. I really want to have it before school starts in august, so I don't know if i can wait for the haswell refresh. Also I need to use windows, I have a copy on win8 that I want to boot camp to. So basically, how well does win8 work on a macbook? I would almost exclusively use windows (mostly because I have office 2013 and play games) is it worth it? I really appreciate any advice you can give. I am new to the apple game, but still I windows fan.
