    I have a Macbook Pro with a 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2GB RAM. I want to install Windows 7 to run some Windows apps that refuse to work under WINE. I already have the disk, so should I dual-boot using Boot Camp, or use VMWare Fusion?

    I've installed Windows 7 on Parallels and it's ran good but all the Aero features are disabled making windows 7 pretty useless. I went back to XP.

    id say go with dual boot, cos then you can install paralells or vmware and use ur bootcamp partition as a virtual machine, so you can use the vm for quick stuff and reboot for stuff like games, its what i do
