I am getting an SSD which may fix my slow performance with Windows 7 on Parallels on Mac Lion. But I hear VMWare is better performing than Parallels, and that Parallels is a dog, even.

What kind of performance improvement should I expect? Should I move the whole disk, including Parallels and Windows 7, to the SSD for a speed test?

After I go with an SSD, will the benefit of VMWare over Parallels be hard to distinguish?
