comment Retina MacBook Pro - Quad core vs. Dual core and virtual machines (VMware Fusion)
Thanks for sharing what your experience has been. For me the 13" MacBook Pro has an advantage in portability. For the way I work the 15" screen size is more f a hindrance as I can use external monitors when I need more screen size. I would also just be using one VM at a time (Windows 8). Basically I want to use Mac OS for browsing, email and the rest while just using the Windows 8 VM for Visual Studio 2013 and SQL Server 2014. It sounds to me, from your experiences, that a dual core i5/i7 would run that configuration just fine with an SSD and 16 GB RAM.

Thanks for the reply. It appears clear to me that the quad core would offer superior performance. I guess what I need to answer now is just how well the dual core i7 or i5 will do with VMWare Fusion. 16 GB RAM is a mustn't my opinion. Just wondering how the dual core processors would handle the virtualization.
