Lightbulb Dual Boot Vs. Non Dual Boot - 12-10-2009, 12:43 PM

Hey Guys,

I just recently received my Dell Mini 10v and I'm having a lot of fun playing around with it. I've seen a lot of videos that teaches how to upgrade memory and how to dual boot. So Here's my question:

"Will dual booting a computer affect its performance?"

For example, would a Windows 7 OS run slower if the computer was dual booted with Snow leopard or would it run just like it wasn't dual booted at all?

No. Dual-booting will not affect the performance when running either OS on your Mini.
