I find using VPC to be invaluable.  The ability to work on the same 
machine has a major advantage during development.  You can do most of 
your work on the Mac side.  When you want to see how it looks on the PC, 
just save the file and drag it over to the PC side.  It is instantly 
there for testing.  Fix what needs to be fixed on the PC side and then 
save it over to the Mac side and start working again.

The faster the Mac, the better.  I have access to a dual gig Mac.  Runs 
really well on that.  But, I also do the same thing on a older power 
book 500 mhz g3.  This is a testament to both Revolution and VPC that 
this works well.
