My IT person has suggested that he will built a computer for me that would use OS X for the main OS and then run Windows and Ubuntu via VMware. Today I spoke to a person at the Geek Squad. He said this could not be done. He suggested I buy a Mac and then run Windows via Bootcamp. He said that Bootcamp is not like VMware in that when you are running Windows you are only using one operating system and with VMware you are running both the OS X and Windows, hence draining the resources somewhat.
My IT person seems very credible and I am wondering who is right in this instance. My IT guy was talking about a very fast processor and 8 gb of ram. I wonder who is right? Also, does bootcamp operate differently than VMware in that you only are using one OS?
