    Hey guys, i need your help again,

    My boss asked me to find the best Virtual machine for macbook pro, he wanted to use ms visio on his mac. He ask me to install VM then then install windows then install ms visio.. any suggestions? oracle vm virtualbox, Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion? which is the best in terms of support, after sales service? really looking forward to your replies.

    Look at parallels or vmware fusion. Both are good products and have good support

    I use Project 2010 and Visio 2010 in a tuned XP Pro SP3 Fusion VM with absolutely no side effects. I can't imagine how it would run any better .

    I have Fusion running on one computer and Parallels on a 15" Macbook Pro.
    I like Parallels better it seams faster to me. I run Auto cad, Corel, and other graphics programs on both.

    Fusion. It's more stable, and benchmarks better. (It's also what I use, and I used to use both.)
