    Not sure if I should get vmfusion or parallels to run windows 7 on.
    They both seem to be as good so I guess I am shallow enough to go for the best looking.
    I will trial both with windows 7.
    Can I do that with a single license copy of W7?

    BTW I read very thread on ag v glossy and small text problems with hi res and worried for weeks!

    As a 63 yr old with glasses for short sightedness (and a short temper) I am delighted with my 15 inch hi-res ag! :)

    One License Will Do

    Since the license is for the machine, one license will work. I use both Parallels and Boot Camp on the same machine with a single W7 license. However, you have 30 days to register so you can make your choice between Parallels or Fusion before submitting W7 registration.

    BTW, I struggled with the hi-res AG issue also. I'm about your age w/ glasses but I opted for a 2.8GHz Apple Store refurb with AG. I don't regret my decision.

    Thanks for the info.

    Glad those of us out of the first flush are coping.
