  • Could I test Windows 7 on a virtual machine in Fusion? My mum's considering getting a Win 7 machine when they come... I need to research to further backup my argument for her getting a MacMini instead
Well. I can now answer this myself. Windows seem to boot slightly faster from the virtual machine than if it's a Boot Camp partition booting in OS X. And Windows 7 installed fine on the virtual machine directly from the downloaded iso-file; didn't have to burn it onto a DVD

24" iMac (3,06GHz, 4GB) with a Windows XP SP3 Boot Camp
13" MacBook (2,4GHz, 2GB)
