As rider said, get core i5 for all your multitasking needs. I have a desktop AMD PC. Its not that good for multi OS environment. It lags when using vmware.

everything will work fine on A8 but penetration testing, may need more cpu power. Do check the system requirements.
And if you are going to do try linux disto through VM, you should be fine but dual boot mayn't be best option as its still a hit and miss affair, specially as A8 have dual GPU and Linux may have hard time detecting both GPU or the fusion GPU itself.

support for trinity is baked in linux 3.4 kernel,but still there would be hiccups in using both discreet and integrated gpu simultaneously in Linux.
