    I am using Fusion. Mouse is a little slow, but I love it this way.

    I use Autocad 2008 running via Bootcamp and it runs exactly the same as the Windows version. I use Autocad on a Windows PC every single day at work and there no issues with Bootcamp Autocad at all.

    I use my 3.06 24" iMac as my primary computer in my office. I hate windows, but for now I have to use AutoCad until I can afford to go with a Mac alternative.

    Until then, I am running AutoCad through VMWare Fusion. I don't use BootCamp at all. Everything runs fine and works as if it were running on a windows computer. No slowdown, no mouse issues. Perfection.
