           Yes, I do. I have 8GB Macbook Pro with 2 RAC clusters. One is Linux 
cluster and another is Solaris x86 clusters. Each 2 node cluster, and I use 
iSCSI, which is a third smaller VM. I have not started all 6 VMs concurrently 
but With three VMs running, I don't see much performance issues. I am in the 
process of adding third node to these clusters at this point.
        
           Only issue I see is that before you alter MAC to sleep mode, you 
need to suspend VMs in a specific order (RAC VMs and then iSCSI VM). Otherwise, 
MAC doesn't come back from sleep mode properly. I didn't really troubleshoot, 
just observed it..
        
         
        Cheers

                        Yes,
                        MacbookPro 13" here.
                        can hold up to 8GB memory.
                        Virtualbox is quite fine - it can do everything I need 
(probably more).
                        
                        by default, the VMs reside on an external Disk attached 
with  FireWire (quite more expensive, but faster and more stable in terms  of 
IO than USB2)
                        
                        What is 'lot of' ? ;-)
