I have a Macbook Pro 15' i5 2.4ghz, that I only bought in June. I have VMware running constantly never turn it off as I always use the Microsoft Office 2010, it's running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, from bootcamp. I run Win 7 in it's own space in full screen and often notice problems with choppy graphics when going back to iTunes from VMware and trying to scroll through album art, but the most annoying part is that I often get the cursor turning into a beachball fairly regularly, and it is very annoying. I was just wondering if there where anyways I could improve the speed and reliability of using VMware as people say that it is quite quick but I seem to find it a bit sluggish; as I already have 4Gb or RAM I thought that is might have to do with the speed of my hdd as it is only 5400rpm. Do you think if i was to upgrade my hdd it would improve the performance of my mac?
