I considered it, but I was told VM softwares would ignore the discreet graphic card and use the intel Iris Pro instead.No, no serious harm in rebooting several times a day.
But, you could also consider using a different solution for using Windows.
For example, a virtual machine app, such as Parallels, or VMWare, will provide another way for you to run Windows without needing to reboot every time that you go from Windows to OS X and back.

How well it works varies widely by game you want to play if this is what you are wondering about. For example, I have read reports of Skyrim working well in Parallels although I am certain some concessions with graphic settings must have been made to achieve that. Maybe I am wrong in the case of the latest highest end Nvidia mobile GPUs but for many Macs you'd probably need to turn down resolution or some eye candy for good FPS in that game. A lot are fine with that trade off to not reboot though as it still looks good and is of course fun to play. Someone reported Dishonored ran well too. Again, considering there is a performance hit running in a virtual machine, I would expect that involved making some trade offs with settings that particular user was okay with. Perhaps on a top end new model iMac you can get away with that though. Mine is a mid-2011 27" so I haven't tried anything like that. I wanted best performance running anything newer.Is there much performance loss compared to bootcamp?
