is RAID 0 recommended for running Windows 7 as a Virtual Machine on a Macbook-Pro with two (2) Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256GB. If so what size stripe should I use 16k or 32k or 64k?

I don't recommend AID0 on any machine. Little is gained from it and it can only lead to headaches later on.

RAID 0 would probably slow access and decrease reliability slightly in a VM. If that's what you're looking for then go for it. I can't imagine that stripe size would make much difference.

This assumes that you are using disk images rather than raw disks attached directly; that would be a fairly atypical setup of a VM.
