I'm running Win XP Pro SP3 on my MP using VMWare 2.0.3. Program-wise I'm running MS Office 2007, some SEO related software and Quickbooks Pro. It seems like VMWare defaulted to using 1 processor and 512MB of RAM. My system seems ungodly slow. Since I'm running on an 8 core machine with 4GB of RAM would things speed up significantly by changing the settings to 2 processors and 2GB of RAM or is this overkill? I also have an identical setup on my new MBP 15" but it's obviously a dual core machine and has 4GB of RAM. What VMWare settings would you recommend for it to run more smoothly? Related or not, I've noticed recently that my activity monitor on the MP is showing lots of "page ins" and "page outs" so I'm seriously considering getting a bunch of RAM to help things along.
