I'd say yes w/more RAM & 64 bit OS

You really need more than 2 GB RAM, but the good news is that it's very cheap. I bought 8 GB for $42 recently. If you can get Windows 7, I'd prefer that to Windows 8, but whichever one you get, be sure to get the 64 bit version.

Good luck.

No to your question.

I've yet to find any machine run VMWARE without pause. I'm guessing you have not tried it on many machines or you would know that it can eat any machine you throw at it.

NICE LAPTOP. Get more ram later.

What do mean by " it can eat any machine you throw at it."

I dont understand by that. What do you mean? I assume that you wanna say that this machine cannot run VMWARE smoothly. Am I right?

No machine has this ability.

I've seen folk try dual XEON quad cored, high end i7's and VMWARE runs but what they were trying to do would not run "smoothly." Can you share what you are doing with VMWARE? The folk I saw this issue were trying to run 3D games in the VM.

But at 2GB it will swap and slow down. But you didn't detail much in your posts. All I can tell is you'll want more RAM.
