Good Day All, I am working as a Database Administrator for a small company. I have one of those jobs where I need to be on 'Stand By' all of the time. My boss offered me the opportunity to have the company purchase me a Macbook Pro. I will be using it as a 'Desktop Replacement' at work as well as a computer I will be taking home at the end of the day. My boss has asked me to send him some specs of what I would like the laptop to have in order for him to place the order. Here are a few applications I use on a daily basis. - Microsoft SQL Server Studio 2005 - Microsoft Office 2007 - Windows XP Professional Can you offer me any laptop specs I need to have to be able to run in a virtual windows environment. Both my Director and Assistant Director are using VMWare and have purchased additional license that I will be able to use. Any assistance you could provide on Hard Drive Space, RAM, Processor Speed etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, MS SQL DBA USING A MACBOOK PRO!!!
