I have a small netbook running a 32 bit processor that I was hoping to use for working on psets during my commute. I've installed vmware and it's suggesting I need a 64bit environment. Is there any way around this (apart from buying a new laptop!)?
Even with hardware virtualization enabled, though, virtual machines might still feel slow if your computer is a few years old, has a CPU that’s only 1GHz or so, or has only 1GB or so of RAM.
