UPDATE 11/24/2008- Parallels Desktop 4 Review here.
I have been using computers since Windows 3.1, where icons were the big addition to the operating system. Always in school we used apple computers.
Last year, my dell laptop had been acting funny. I finally caved and bought a macbook precisely one year ago. It’s cool, a lot smaller (I couldn’t afford the larger models, even as a student)
The tragic flaw was, for some of the homework I needed to do, I needed windows. I would have to switch back and forth between laptops, or go use the windows computers in the library. This was always a pain.
Then a friend going to WPI recommended Parallels. It might be the greatest thing since the invention of the computer.
I can run windows and mac together at the same time on my computer. I can also run applications side by side with those on my mac.
It has saved me numerous times, and makes me excited to see what technology is coming too. Parallels keeps improving, and I like them much more the VM Fusion.
To post in this blog, I use windows live writer alongside some mac editing software. All through parallels.
I suggest you go buy a copy at Amazon.com, and check out the specs on www.parallels.com
