    Hi

    I am not a gamer, but might like to purchase and install windows 7. I have XP already running in parallels 5. Do I have enough memory to run windows 7?

    Thanks

    Jay

    Yes, you can. It might not be quite as fast as using XP, but it should work fine if you're satisfied with your current speed with XP.

    Make sure you get a 32 bit version for your VM minimum requirements for 64 bit are 2 GB.
