    For the 2012 27" 3.4 GHz Quad Core i7, will VMWare Fusion take advantage hyperthreading and treat it 4 pCPUs as 8 logical vCPUs? Thanks!

    I would think so. My quad core i7 Mac mini gives the option of "8 processor cores".

    So if I have a windows VM, I can assign 4 vCPUs to it, and my OSX side still has 4 core processing power?

    Well VMWare Fusion doesn't quite work like that. It isn't like VMWare vSphere where you can lock or dedicate CPUs. But basically yes.

    How does VMWare Fusion work? Pardon my ignorance as I'm used to vSphere and ESXi at work.
