    Hi guys, have done a search on this topic, but didn't find anything too useful. I already have a bootcamp partition, but am sick of having to switch back and forth. Morrowind is/will be the non-native game I'll be running (I also play Bliz games), and I was wondering if it would run alright using either Parallels/VMWare Fusion. If so, which would be the better choice? Thanks

    Oh forgot to mention specs, it's the 17" unibody, early 2009 release (2.66Ghz/9600m gt) Thanks

    I have a 2.4ghz 15"unibody with the 9600m and I have Morrowind in Steam in bootcamp (win7) - I share that bootcamp partition with Parallels.

    - It runs fine in Parallels.. A bit choppy sometimes, but seems playable.. The advantage to this method is you just have to keep one windows (and morrowind) install, and if you do need the extra performance you can still play it in bootcamp.. In the past I've found Parallels to be much faster than VMware for games but they keep leapfrogging each other so I'm not sure what's best right now. :)

    It's possible to run the game in a cider wrapper and it is playable in Parallels.
