I personally think Parallels performs better, has more useful features. In short, Parallels Desktop under Mac OS will make your Mac incredibly powerful.
I’m always a PC lover. However, I turn to Mac recently. There are many programs that can only be used on PC. It seems I can either keep using PC or use Bootcamp. But Bootcamp can’t work seamlessly. Then I get to know about Parallels. I downloaded it to have a try. It is very easy to use. I can easily run my old applications on Mac. Parallels doesn’t cost me too much. It is really a cheap and effective software for anyone who wants to turn to Mac but keeps PC programs.
I used to run Parallels 4 on my late '08 MB Pro with 4GB RAM. It ran very slowly, this is really annoying. Then I run build 6 version on the same machine with 8GB RAM, this brings a big difference. When I run Windows system with this tool, it seems I’m running a computer with native Windows system. I don’t use Windows very often. But every time I use Parallels, it loads very fast, I don’t need to wait long. Parallels is a good product, worth trying. Now I only need to wait for regular MS Windows updates.
If you are currently using Mac computer, but want to use other system programs, especially the windows programs, the virtual system will be good choice, better than installing the dual system.
Parallel is well designed. Very easy to use and work very well. Like it!
Parallels Desktop 9 is a good partner for you MAC/PC. You can run more than 1 OS simultaneously with it. Before you decide to switch to another system, try Parallels first. You can see whether it works.
Before Parallels, I used VMware, a similar product. Parallel is very handy, it is quite suitable for os x Mavericks. I use it on my office computer, it is very helpful.The only thing you need to consider is to have enough ram, so that everything can go smoothly. My current computer is MAC book pro 2010 with 12 megs of ram and intel core 2 duo.
When I first heard that Parallels can enable me to run Windows applications on mac, I was quite doubtful. I’m working in a new medical practice recently. I just bought a mac for my office. Unfortunately, I found the new version management software can only work with Windows based server. This is really annoying. Then others recommended Parallels to me. I tried it on my mac, it really worked very well and I no longer have to replace the computer. I appreciate this wonderful software.
In my daily work, I’m always trying to create audio and videos. Meanwhile, I also need to do lots of professional IT stuff. So I need two operating systems running at the same time. Parallels just helps me a lot for what I need.
I started using Parallels on my mac more than 4 years ago. With its help, I can run enterprise software with win7 and keep using mac on my laptop in other cases.
Parallels Desktop is compatible with ESRI ArcGIS Desktop, its video driver has better compatibility than other similar products. I often use Virtualbox on Linux. I can easily import the current virtual machines into Parallels.
Parallel is a good software. I can develop windows software on mac directly. It works as well as it says.
Parallels works very well. It provides good effect and integrates Windows, Linux, etc very well.
Parallels Desktop for Mac is very good. I’m used to Windows system, now I just bought a Macbook. I like my Macbook, but there are some Windows apps that I can’t give up. I know BootCamp, but Parallel seems easier and handier. When it runs on my Macbook Pro with i5 processor and 8 GB RAM, it works very well. With it, I can change between different operating systems without booting.
The installing and setting is very easy. It works very well. I can easily run window on iMac. This really helps me a lot.
It is a good tool for Mac that simulates Windows and Linux environments. But it is not so flexible as VirtualBOX. I have used version 6,7 and 9 of Parallels for my XP installation.I also know Bootcamp, but I don’t use it so often. Parallel is good for me. It runs stably on my iMac late 2009 with 6Gb ram and a new SSD Maveriks. The result is amazing.
With Mac, I never have to worry about memory running out, computer lockup or the Blue screen problem. Then with the help of Parallels, I can not only keep using mac, but also run PC-based software without any problem. This makes me very happy. When I run Parallels, it seems to be a Mac application. I’m really grateful for Parallels.
Parallels Desktop works perfectly. I can run windows stably on mac as if I’m running a real Windows machine. I hope I don’t need to buy a new license of Parallels when Mac is updated to a new OS version.
I’m an old user of Parallel. It helps me run Windows programs on Mac. It’s so great!
With Parallel, I can easily run Windows OS on Mac from the task bar and I don’t even need to reboot computer. The operation is easy. If you need to run Windows programs on a Mac, it’s a good choice for you.
