I've found with limited testing on my new SSD that the VM performs much better. I would say your hard drive is your biggest bottleneck if you have a modern cpu and decnet amount of (RAM 2-4GB). Your applications inside the VM should be noticeably faster if you run it on SSD. Check out this tweet I did on Fusion booting an XP machine on an MBP(late 2008) with SSD
The other thing i love is resuming a paused VM is very fast! Let me know if you have any other questions or anything you'd like tested.
Are you running a new MBP? Apple SSD or 3rd party SSD? Thanks for the demo!
I have a Macbook Pro (Late 2008 - Model 3,1) with 4GB of RAM and a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processor. The SSD is a 40GB Intel X25-V. Makes the computer feel brand new and probably will add a year or two of usability to it.
