I run a Macbook Pro with Windows 7 running under VMWare Fusion. It runs with no issues at all. I would assume that running windows with bootcamp will be even better than a virtual machine. So yes, it should be fine.

Should be no problem at all. Probably shouldn't run 8 panadapters on ANY laptop, though.

Bootcamp boots Windows outside of OS X (unlike VMWare, Parallels etc which run as a virtual machine) therefore it should be no worse than running Windows on any similar specification Acer, Dell, HP etc. laptop.

Graphics card is only part of the picture, CPU & memory also play an important part. If it is a modern MacBook, they are usually AMD Radeon based which should be OK but as a previous poster said, you maybe wouldn't want to run all 8 panadaptors on any laptop? If you can tell me what year model the MacBook is I should be able to tell you what graphics chipset it uses.

That is the last "non-retina" Macbook Pro so has the Intel HD 4000 graphics. The latest 2015 model MacBook pro has the Radeon R9 M370X which although it has a much better 3d score, has similar 2d performance. Most manufacturers seem to focus on 3d rendering performance (better for gaming/cad) but even the top scoring Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti only has 2d performance of around 1000 (G2D mark) compared to yours which scores around 670. I wouldn't be too worried but if you start to see slowdowns just close a panadaptor or 2!

Has anyone done a direct ethernet connection from a virtual machine (computer straight to radio no router)?

That is a MUCH faster GPU, about 10 times better 3d performance and around double the 2d score so I would have said that would work well. The other benefit is being 2560x1440 resolution, you can fit a lot more on the screen (useful for multiple panadaptors!)
