My Vaio Notebook PC, purchased in 2008 is starting to run out of steam. It's been used for work mainly, and my plan to purchase a MBP, 15", is pretty much just waiting to see what Apple does in two weeks in terms of the refresh.

Since there is at least one application that requires Windows, I'll be running VMWare Fusion. I had good experiences with it and WinXp, but I'm wondering about Win 7, and particularly, Win 8.

Anybody have some suggestions.

Win7 runs quite happily under VMware (and generally doesn't complain about the "hardware"). With the exception of VMmare tools, there's no indication that Win is running n a Mac. The one suggestion I would make is to load up the ram on your system. Win7 needs more ram to function smoothly than the minimum requirements as stated by Microsoft. I run VMware/Win7 daily at the office, as sme of the apps we use are windows-only.
