I would give the Windows 7 VM 1 Gig of ram, (leaving the laptop 1 Gig)
if you use them both and switch back and forth often. They should be
able to run in one gig of ram each.
Or, you can give Windows 7 more ram, (such as 1.5 Gigs) if you are
mainly using Windows 7 and then shutting it off afterwards. That will
release the ram back to the laptop.
If I recall correctly, you are limited to allocating no more than half
of your physical RAM for use by the VM. If this is actually the case,
on a 2 GByte machine, you can allocate no more than 1 Gbyte to the VM.
Of course if you can get around this, the more RAM that you give to a VM
the better. Just be sure that you leave enough RAM to the physical
computer. How much that is depends on how you use it.
