I have never owned a macbook pro and want to purchase one. I like the 13" screen but dont know if the dualcore i7 will handle running VM's...any thoughts on what I should purchse? 13" MBP or 15" MBP... i am not a gamer but will use backtrack and other linux in VM's

I will get 8gb ram upgrade

15". If you want to run lots of VMs, you should get the i7. However, if you're short on money, because Apple improved the specs of the new 13"s drastically, it should be fine.

I've run VM's on a Mid 2010 Poly MB and it does fine but then I've run VM's on Pentium D's also.
