Just got brand new 2015 MBPr 16/512. Main purpose was to get rid of my quad-core beast desktop and move my working VM into laptop. It's easy because I was using VMWare Workstation on desktop. I'm happy that everything works well and probably better than expected. CPU-intensive tasks on this i5 2.9 with 2 cores is not any slower than on 3 year old quad-core i7-2700k. Windows even gave it more score However, see what its doing to CPU. VM stable, no activity going on in W8. You see I suspended VM at the end and CPU went to 0. Is that a VMWare tax on CPU? How is windows doing when in BootCamp?
