    I have recently added 2g of ram to my macbook to make it work faster with my drafting/design programs - so i now have 4g sdram, but when i run AUTOCAD through parallels it still runs as slowly as before, which is unusable.

    Anyone know where im going wrong, im sure there is an easy solution.

    One issue i thought could be the problem is the bluetooth mouse i use...i really have no idea...

    Would really appreciate some advice here.

    Many thanks.

    Did you increase the RAM allocated to the virtual machine? That might help.

    In reality though any graphic intense application will not run well under virtualisation. Your best bet is boot camp.
