Is MacBook Pro 13in powerful enough for Metastock running on windows in parallel on virtual machine?


iMore Question

Hi, I am considering the 2.7 Ghz MBP 13 inch (2015 model) with 8 GB ram and 256 Gb SSD. I do the usual web browsing (multiple tabs), watching videos on youtube, Word, Excel and the occasional bittorrent downloading. I do not do photo or video editing and do not play games. But I would want to run windows on a parallel virtual machine to run Metastock (trading software) to do some data backtesting sometimes and to do charting mainly. Is anyone familiar with Metastock? Do you think the MBP 13 inch would be powerful enough for my purpose and uasge? Thanks so much!
