    2. Dell Inspiron 2GHz Pentium D 2GB Ram running natively

    Mac Pro.

    The VM might be limited in how many cores it can actually take advantage of (I think VMware Fusion tops out at 8) and the amount of RAM it can consume will probably by a lot less than 64GB. There could be a slight squeeze with the graphics performance, too.

    Currently you can assign max. 8 GB RAM to the VM...

    To answer you question: definitely the MacPro
