asked on 

Can I get a MacBook Pro?

I currently own a 5+ old Inspiron 9300.  I want to get a new computer, and like the idea of running mac + windows.

The only windows programs I need to run is Access 2010 (all of office probably), and Visual Studio 2008 or 2010, SQL Server for developing.

Everything else I want to do on the mac.  I know there is parrells and vm ware fusion.

My question, will I have any problems.  Using parrells or vm ware fusion, can I just switch to do development, and go back and forth between the windows and mac OS?  If I only surf the web on the mac side, I assume I dont need any antivirus software, etc on the windows?

My budget it $3k, so money is not an issue I think....

Thanks for any insight....

A laptop or notebook is a portable personal computer with a clamshell form factor, suitable for mobile use. Although originally there was a distinction between laptops and notebooks, the former being bigger and heavier than the latter, there is often no longer any difference. Laptops are commonly used in a variety of settings, such as at work, in education, and for personal multimedia. A laptop combines the components, inputs, outputs and capabilities of a desktop computer, including the display screen, speakers, a keyboard, and pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad) into a single unit. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter.
