    VMFusion 4 and Games?
    I realize that playing games via Windows 7 Boot Camp is my ideal chance of playing windows games, but I already have VMFusion 4 set up with Windows 7.

    How will the performance of some games such as Skyrim be on Windows 7 VMFusion 4?

    My mbp specs (early 2011 model):
    2.2 GHz quad core i7
    4 GB ram
    AMD Radeon HD 6750M

    3D acceleration is extremely limited in virtualization, period. Doesn't matter whether we're talking about Fusion or Parallels, there is a certain layer of abstraction that adds up to overhead when we're talking about games.

    I'm not familiar with Skyrim, but I can tell you that for the most part, you're going to be looking at mostly older games that run well (think 5+ years old) or anything that doesn't require 3D acceleration (games that have simplistic, mostly 2D graphics).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
