After installing Windows and Microsoft Office from a ghost image, I rebooted Windows XP from inside VMWare Fusion, and it was as if I had a brand new computer within a computer. Rather than the sluggishness I had expected from a virtual machine, working within Windows on my Mac was just as fast as it ever was on my Dell. Outlook connected with the company network and recognized my login credentials. Internet Explorer and Firefox, utilizing the Internet connection on my Mac, connected to the Web. I could even maximize the Windows OS to full screen (1440 x 900 on my laptop). While seeing a Windows desktop on my Mac was undeniably weird, I knew I had the world’s best Windows laptop on the planet.
