I just bought the latest MacBook Air. I'm running Parallels with Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2010. Since I'm running out of disk space, I want to move the VM to an external drive. Since I will be developing in Visual Studio 2010 within the VM the performance of course needs to be good. I assigned 2GB memory to the VM, but now I need to decide what hard disk I need.
I though it might be wise to go for USB3.0, since the MBA supports this. But I can't decide whether I need an SSD drive (which is way more costly) or just a regular drive.
Does anyone have any experience or intelligent thoughts on this?
