    Does anyone use VMWare with close to the same specs on their computer?

    If I move above two cores processing, I get a warning saying that the computer might not run at optimal speed or whatever. Ram at the moment is fine. I might move it up to 8gb.

    All I need to use it for is ArcGIS 10.1 on windows 7.

    I wouldn't recommend it. At most, I'll run up to 75% of total specs to a virtual machine but that's only if I'm not doing anything on the OSX side. But usually at that point, I just reboot into Windows and have full access to the hardware.
