    I have two MacBook Pro's and I cannot decide which to put Parallels on for running Windows. I am taking some classes that require Visual Studio, Intel XDK, MS Visio. I also plan on taking more classes in IA.

    My older MBP is mid-2010 and the hard drive is about half full of 250gb and it has a cracked screen. My newer 2014 rMBP is brand new but it only has 128gb flash storage. I plan on keeping all of my iTunes stuff on the older one. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?

    - Choose the biggest RAM one
    - Choose also one with SSD instead of harddrive

    What he said. Plus, choose the one with the most cores and/or hyperthreading.

    Use your 2014 rMBP and buy an external drive to put all your stuff on.
