Almost seamless transition,
This review is from: VMware Fusion 5 (Mac) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I converted from PCs to Macs a few years ago I needed to be able to continue running some PC based software. At that stage there was a choice between dual booting using Boot Camp or using one the emulators such as VM Fusion or Parallels. I opted for VM Fusion and since then have generally found that this product works well on my MacBook Pro. It's generally stable but you do need to have enough memory on your computer to run both programs together - upgrading to 8GB of RAM made things much quicker. I occasionally have difficulty getting the printer facility to work from Windows (I am connecting wirelessly to my printer via another Mac). Accessing the file structure of both OS is simple and seamless. As I feel that the Mac offers better security, I rarely access the internet using Windows - switching to Safari if when I need to go on the web. Connecting peripherals is easy - you are given the choice of which operating system you want to connect to. Overall if you need to run Windows on a Mac I would recommend this product.
