    Hi

    I will be buying a new iMac and would like to have enough RAM for good permormance of Windows 7 using VMware fusion. I can order either 4GB of RAM or 8GB? or maybe even 6GB.

    How much RAM is best?

    Thanks jay

    The more the merrier is always the rule for RAM.

    W7 runs pretty well in Fusion with 2GB allocated on a 4GB system but it will depend on what you intend to do in both OSes.
