  1. switch to mac macrumors newbie

    Aug 3, 2011

    Looking into switching from thinkpad to macbook air or macbook pro.
    I do not consider myself to be a heavy user so i am leaning towards the macbook air 13" 256 i7 but i need to use windows for certain applications.

    Do i have to install a boot camp partion with regards to the limited RAM or can i use parallels/VMware and use the sd-slot to "ready boost" windows for access to further RAM. So that i can use both OS X and Windows at the same time?

    In advance thanks for your input!

    That is a really good question about using "ready boost". I have never thought of that. Maybe the more experienced people on this forum can give us an insight to this.
