It WILL slow down. VPC performance will be passable, not great, and you may even be able to watch Instant Ifilm (Whatever that is) but the mini will suffer as it has to run two OS's simultaneously.
Performance on the mini will NOT be affected during those times that you do NOT have VPC running.
Hi. I bought a mac mini and it's working great. I'm thinking of buying Virtual PC so I can get instant Ifilm and watch some high quality movie clips etc. It only works on windows, so I'm hoping it will work if I emulate a windows system. My question is to anyone who has used VPC on a G4 mac. Does Virtual PC effect general performance (of course windows applications will be a bit slower, but I mean just day to day mac stuff)? Because if it's going to slow it down, I won't bother with it. Thank you.
