    Hi all,

    Really enjoying my new i7 iMac with the internal SSD but wondering about an installation of Windows 7. Would like to use Windows for one or two apps plus the odd game so just need to decide about partitioning the SSD or going down the external thunderbolt SSD drive route.

    Little bit reluctant to partition the internal SSD at the mo for the Windows 'clutter' and loss of space for my main use (OS X) but has anyone experience of booting to an external SSD for Win 7? Is it fast, without any probs? Thinking of the Lacie Rugged SSD or the Buffalo.
