I haven't used the most recent version, but in my experience there's not
really any big downside for what it is.  The good: you have a "real" Windows
system on your Mac.  The bad: it's pretty slow, takes a long time to start
up.  Display/gamma is the Mac's, so have to remember display will be a bit
different on actual PCs.

It's always best to have a dedicated Windows system, but if you need a low
cost option, VPC isn't a bad way to go.
