Hi, I just made the switch from my PC of many years to a brand new iMac. Wow, what a beautiful machine!!!
However, I still have some applications that are Windows based and need to continue to run them. I can't switch them to the Mac version, because it would be cost prohibitive (over $2K to buy the Mac versions).
I have a 3TB SATA drive with 32GB Ram. I would like to either repartition part of the drive (about 500GB) for Windows 7 and load all my apps into that partition and dual boot, or maybe run a virtual session of Windows 7.
My question is which is better and why? Should I dual boot or should I run a virtual Windows session?
If someone can help me understand the different issues with each and which is better, I would greatly appreciate your help.
