I was wondering if any of you has ever used VMware to run linux on a MBP? I'm gonna be starting school later on this month for a Network Administrator major, and I will need Lunix for one class. One of the advisors said that I can always "use VMWare Fusion and create a virtual machine for Linux" Will the regular non retina 13" MBP work well for this purpose? I'm thinking about maxing the ram to 8GB and also upgrading to a 1TB HDD. Thanks.
