    I am a long time Mac user, and in the past I have never had an issue with using it for work. Now, however, I work for a company who uses a software suite that hasn't been written for Mac. There is no way around using this software, it's a daily use type thing. I don't want to buy a Windows PC so a friend recommended I partition the hard drive on a Mac and run Windows on one half using boot camp.

    My concern is that by doing this the whole system (both osx and windows sides) will lag or run slower, presumably decreasing my productivity. I'm looking at getting the $1299 13" MBP with retina display. Does anyone know if this will work well for my needs?

    Thanks!

    Running Windows under Bootcamp will not slow down either OSX or Windows because they both don't run at the same time. You are booted into one or the other.
    That 13" rMBP should be fine but I'd recommend going up to at least 8GB of RAM from the base machine. It should run fine with the base 4GB but since the RAM isn't upgradeable it is better to have more.

    The performance difference between 4 and 8 gig is big.
