So I have a bit of a first world problem here. My company is "allowing" us to select new 2012 model laptops. All are core i7 with SSD's and 8 GB's of RAM. I absolutely adore my macbook at home so I was excited to try and select a Macbook Air having had a good experience with Parallels but apparently we use VM Ware. How functional is it and do you think I'd have significant trouble using it in a divsion that is so closely aligned with Microsoft that we use some of their proprietary advertising business tools? Other option of course is an ugly but beefy t430 thinkpad with HD + http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/la...t-series/t430/ I should also note that the company is "encouraging" us not to go with the Mac out of fear that it will cause bottlenecks but I think half of that is their lack of experience for Macs in general. 8gb's of RAM on the top of the line Macbook air shouldn't be a problem I would think.
