    I installed Windows 7 Beta on my regular Macbook on VMWare Fusion and it ran fine. My specs are 2.16ghz C2D, 2GB Ram, 120gb hdd, integrated video. No problem with drivers

    Any issues with installing drivers?

    Should I expect any problems coming from XP?

    I'm sticking with XP for the moment. I hardly use it anyway.

    a lot better than Vista, quite a bit faster all the boot camp functions are working sound, back lit keys, track pad etc...

    Got a 5.0 on the windows experience index
