MacBook Pro for Windows development via virtualization. Performance?
I am wondering if using a MacBook Pro 15 (2.66 Ghz i7, High Res Anti Glare, Custom SSD, 8 GB RAM) for .NET development (as well as the occasional dabble into Xcode for iPhone coding) makes sense?
I love the hardware. I already have a 24" screen which I can attach to the MBP via Display Port when I feel the need for more screen space.
Will running Visual Studio 2010 (and its successor) via VMWare Fusion/Parallels hinder the performance by a noticeable margin?
Hoping to make an informed decision.
PS: Will be buying (if at all) once the refresh is out (with Sandy Bridge processors)
