    I'm surprised today how slow it is when I tried to do some really simple thing in VirtualBox Win7 Excel 2013. The excel is just 700KB. It will freeze a couple of seconds even when I tried to edit comment or choose a range. It is totally not usable. My rMB is highest spec (1.3 & 512). Any ideas how to make it faster? Should I change to parallel or fusion?

    VirtualBox isn't the best when it comes to performance. Both Parallels and VMware Fusion should be dramatically better. I personally use Parallels from time to time.
