Re: MacTech does latest Fusion vs Parallels Test

I chose Parallels originally and have been very happy with it running Win7 on my personal iMac. When I recently bought a MBPr 13" as a BYOD work laptop replacement, I stayed with Parallels and initially was using XP since there were some critical applications that were not supported on Win7. Those compatibility issues were resolved recently and I converted to Win7 there, too. My observations...the new, clean Win7 VM is smaller than the XP one was and runs at what seems a million times faster. SSD space for my VM is only about 22GB...including Office and other Windows applications. The XP VM (because it had been around for years, essentially) was about 35gb...
