I currently have a Mac, 2ghz and 2 gigs of ram, running OS X Leopard and Virtual Box with a Windows 7 Pro 32bit virtual machine.
Performance on the virtual machine is fine for minor tasks but is very clunky while trying to multi-task or develop in Visual Studio 2008.
What would be my best option for being able to use Visual Studio, keeping cost and time in mind?
1) Upgrade ram to 4 gigs ($100). Will this really improve my performance enough to use Visual Studio in a Windows 7 vm? Or am I just wasting time/money?
2) Reinstall/restore Windows 7 disk image as a Boot Camp partition. I assume this should improve my performance, yes?
3) Purchase VMWare fusion instead of VirtualBox. Does Fusion require less resources to run?
I am open to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance
