Does anyone have any advice? MBP w/3G of ram. Currently allocating 1g. Seems really slow.
What do you use what exact Windows version in what exact VMWare Fusion version on what Mac OS X version on what exact Mac for?

It seems, 3GB is the maximum amount of RAM you can use, thus you could up the amount of RAM used in VMWare Fusion to 1.5GB or 2GB.
Again, what Windows version are you using and what do you want to use it for?

Btw, some got their MBPs with your specs to have 4GB RAM available: http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...ore-2-duo-3-gb-memory-limitation-details.html
I am using Vista and fusion 2.0.6
I have 3rd party software for work.
I changed it to run 2g on the windows side. Seems to run smoother. If I do not swap between op systems, should I allocate more? What does upgrading to fusion 3.x do?
What kind of third party software are you running?
You might get a bit of a boost if you can run it on XP or 2000 since they are less resource intensive than Vista.
Also note that if you dedicate 2/3 Gb to your VM you don't have much left for OS X. Don't try to run anything intensive while your VM is active.
What do you mean by "If I do not swap between op systems, should I allocate more?"
The software is proprietary.
I mean that when I run windows, I have all mac programs shut down.
