    Hello All,

    I know that tons of threads are already out there, I just wanted to ask my own question to the community.

    I use SPSS on a regular basis and usually have Word, Excel, and a Browser tab or two open while I work on homework. Am I going to be pushing the capabilities of the new 2015 Retina MacBook with just these few programs open? I really want the portability, but the Core M processor scares me...

    Any thoughts on how powerful / or not powerful they are?

    Anybody used one of the new Lenovo Yogas that can attest to the processing power?

    Thanks for your advice!

    I was told that SPSS does not work on INTEL based Macs ?
    Which version do you use ?

    I use version 21. The only bug is that you need to install an older version of Java (v6?) for the installer to run properly. But other than that it works fine.
