Hello buddies, I've been struggling making a decision on whether or not to buy a Macbook pro recently and I think it is the right place to ask. One major reason why I want to purchase a new laptop is that I want to install a VMWare workstation and run some heavy ERP server applications (with database) on it so that I can use it in hotels during my trips. So for memory I need at least 8GB memory and 16GB will be even better. For the CPU consumption I monitored my laptop which has a Xeon E3 V1230 4 core CPU and found most of time the CPU usage is around 10% so I suppose i5 CPU shall be fine but a 4-core i7 will be even better. I hope Microsoft Windows 7 with bootcamp will run as good as it is running on other normal PC. At the beginning I considered a Lenovo thinkpad T430, but some friends told me thinkpad's durability is not as good as it used to be, which becomes my major concern. Other than thinkpad, I cannot recall any brand with the good reputation of quality / service this is why I'm considering Macbook pro. Also I always would like to try to use Max OS X system as I have bought several iPhones / iPads so I am quite a fan of Apple. So to meet my requrirements is a 13" macbook pro good choice for me or maybe I shall go for the 15" version? Or, even it's better if I can wait for the next generation with haswell CPUs? Just before one day before I'm going to get one Macbook, I noticed the buyer guide of MacRumors and the recommendation of Macbook pro w/o Retina is "Don't buy, update soon". I'm not sure how this status generates - is it automatically changed based on the days since last version released or it's a editor's manual change? Thanks in advance.
