New on forums but have been reading here for a long time, hi all My main work tasks consists of .NET development - From complex CRM websites to different Windows Applications and API Services. Lately, i have also started developing a lot of apps in Xcode. Usually, I write the API in .NET paralell to developing apps in a virtual machine running OS X. Using a HP Elitebook as my main machine today. I have really started to like OS X, and the hardware is simply amazing. I have thought a lot about making the switch to using a Macbook Pro where I would run OS X as the primary operating system, and Windows 8 in Parallells running Visual Studio. Anyone has any thoughts about this? Experiences? I am looking at the Macbook Pro Retina 15" with 512 GB SSD and 16 GB ram (lots of storage and memory for virtualization). Any thoughts about this machine? The 13" would be much more portable but I am under the impression that a Quad Code would be better for running a virtualized Windows machine > 50% of all time.
