My hesitation is whether Windows Parallels will work smooth and snappy on this machine. Have some software like Microsoft Publisher that has no Mac equivalent.
Tired of carrying an old Windows machine around just for the purpose of Publisher...
Or MBP only for Windows Parallels?
Interested to know as well as I am using Windows Parallels on my iMac.
I managed to get Parallels working decently on a 12” MacBook 2 years ago (was on a lower spec 8 GB RAM variant) with software like SQL Server Management Studio, so running a VM on the new MBA for things like publisher should be fine.I’m skeptical of parallels.
I would wait for benchmarks but my gut feel is that the non-TB Pro, while dated, will work harder for longer, and might be a better option.
Again, I’d wait for real specs and benchmarks.
It’s surprising we haven’t seen any deep reviews yet.
