    This what I got:
    Macbook pro mid 2009 15' Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66GHZ 8Go RAM Mac OS X Mavericks

    Is this sufficient to run a Windows 8 Virtual Machine?

    thanks :)

    Sure, I've run windows on my 2009 MBP in vmware and it was fine.

    With 8GB of RAM you'll be fine. The C2D might be your limiting factor though if you do anything heavy in Windows over VMware.
