    Just a real quick poll. Need something light weight. Running Windows 7 on my macbook pro. Running 64GB SSD and dont need a lot of bloat. What is your quick recommendation? No details needed.

    Thanks

    Ive been using parallels since i got my first mbp like a month ago and works like it should , download the trial and setup coherence mode :) im sure you wont regret it , and i suggest upgrading to 8gb ram if you have 4gb it really makes the difference.

    I run VMWare Fusion. Works great for me. However, I don't know any different - never used Parallels

    I use Parallels, never used VMware though

    I hate coherence, I just need to keep the two seperate. Although I have seen an experienced user with coherence (showing it off to me) and it looks like a great feature if you can get used to it.
