Now that you have your virtual machine (VM) – what are the best hardware configurations for optimal performance. Here is one good CPU, video and OS combination for your VM. Information technology (IT) professionals can take the synergies of each part to create the best functionality for the whole system.
Windows 7 Virtual Box with MacBook Pro and at least 32 Mega Bytes of Video Memory using a 2Ghz Intel quad core is an optimal configuration. The video settings need to be at least this high because Mac products require more resources for dealing with graphics. Some professionals also suggest that there should only be one processor because multiple processors can lead to problems with the Virtual Box.
