    Great Way to Have a Mac and a PC in One

    As a new MacBook user, I was a bit concerned about the leap from PC Windows machines that I have used for decades. And although, I love using a Mac, I still wanted to familiarity of a Windows system and the ability to use Windows based software that I already had. This is where I opted for Parallels instead of the Mac Boot Camp feature. There is no need to partition a drive to take full effect of a Windows environment and I can jump into and out of Windows easily without rebooting my system. I love it!

    Ain't what it used to be

    The older versions of Parallels were much more reliable and user friendly. This one crashes all the time and it is much more difficult to move between the Windows and Mac side. It is impossible to share files, photos and docs. Example: and Word documents I save to the Mac desktop automatically open in Pages, even though Word is designated as my preferred program for document files

    If you ever need to use windows/windows applications but must have a MacBook and just cannot deal with using windows on a day to day basis you must get Parallels. The perfect windows solution for someone who cannot give up MacOS and live with using a windows laptop everyday. Makes using windows on a Mac super simple and does not require to have to boot into a single OS.

    The software runs smoothly! It's important to know that the maximum RAM you can utilize in your virtual machine using this edition is 8 GB (I didn't know that while being it). The toolbox that comes with the license is also super useful for converting and even capturing videos from you computer.

    If you need Windows on your Mac, Parallels provides a seamless and effective way to manage those needs. For e.g. MS Project is unavailable on Mac and I needed Windows on my iMac. Parallels provides an efficient and effective way of managing those needs.

    I was new to Mac OS and still had some programs that I needed to run on window. Parallels was a great solution. You can switch between a Mac and PC. With desktop shortcuts it will switch on its own.

    Dont buy. Eats up all the space. Takes over other programs and drops others that you need. And you still have to swith back and forth constantly. Big scam.

    This is an amazing program to run more than one OS without the need of boot camp. I was able to save a few bucks buy buying the code in a box then digitally.

    I liked being able to use Windows on the Mac mostly for my grammar checker. Would be better if I had a 16GB Mac.
