Well firstly just signed up here because it seems to be a very active forum and has a lot of active users so thought id say hi on my first post. Basically I'm looking at purchasing a Macbook Pro as I want a reliable system as I will be going into my final year at uni. Other systems that were looked at were thinkpads & probooks but they seem to cost about the same when configured. As I've never tried OSX before i just thought it would be best to ask some knowledgeable people about some questions i have. Mainly will be used for a bit of programming but its main use would be use of VM's and would hopefully have a full Linux install dual booted. The retina screen would be great and allow multiple windows etc to be viewed at once which is one of the main selling points to me. So just really want to ask how well VM's work and what would be the best software so i can look into it a little. and has anyone got much experience running Linux distros and are their any driver problems and whatnot. Many thanks in advance.
