I've only had experience of VMWare and bootcamp. VMWare is an easier means of installing windows though bootcamp runs it faster. The issue I find with VMWare is the crossover of modifier keys which I believe you can sort but it's a pain and the down side of bootcamp, aside from the inability to bounce back and forth, is that you might need sighted assistance to install or, at least, an external sound card. It seems that the updates, including most of the drivers for your specific Mac, are installed after windows has finished installing which can be a bit frustrating as I had experiences of it going quiet.

I'm happy with bootcamp now though and use it for gaming. The other up side is it's free.
