    i recently received a update with a lion running laptop.

    my vmare 4 is so slow! resuming a win7 box is a 4 minute ordeal. is this the new normal or am i doing something wrong?

    this is like night and day from before.

    any help would be appreciated.

    How much ram do you have?

    I'm not seeing any performance issues with VMware Fusion 4 and Lion.

    thank you for the reply.

    i have 4gb's of ram in the machine.

    i always have one linux and one windows box loaded with no issues before on SL with 4gb's of ram.

    i will update to 8gb if that is my stranglehold?

    I'm taking that you had VMware Fusion 3 on SL? Try and downgrade back to that and see your performance. V3 works fine on my Lion machine.

    Upgrading your RAM always helps for Virtual Machines too.
