    You would see a tremendous boost if you would upgrade your RAM to 4 GB
    I run Windows 7 RC 64 bit on my MBP with 4 GB with Fusion and it works well

    You're definitely going to want more RAM so you don't page out while running a virtual machine.

    Max out the RAM. RAM is cheap and you'll see huge performance gains.
