    For those who have the new MB and are running vmware view on their laptops, how is the performance? Please post your model as well.

    I usually take my laptop to work and use VMWARE to connect to our intranet and I need to know if it will be capable of doing so.

    rMB with VMWare

    I didn't really understand rMB vs VMWare - it's not one or the other, but both together!

    I haven't tried this, but other posts indicate that running a VMWare Fusion VM guest should run OK on the rMB. One guy had three Windows 8.1 guests running concurrently.

    I would expect you should be able to run a 4GB Windows 7 guest OK on this machine. Windows 8.1 seem to need fewer resources, and some Linux VMs can be tiny, particularly if they are "headless" with no GUI.
