    Installed Windoes with Boot camp - can access Bootcamp partition as stand alone or via parallels from MAC OS. It works fine, fast - so no worries if you need Windows on your Mac

    As an architect, I love using my Mac for most things, but some software that I must use is Windows only, including Revit by Autodesk. Parallels makes it seem like the Windows apps are running natively in Mac and even printers and clipboard functions go back and forth. Parallels was one of the best purchases for my business outside of my Macbook Pro!

  • Fantastic

    • by Donna B
    • Jul 22, 2014

    Because there are still programs that you can't use on Mac, Parallels allows me to work with these as if they were apple programs. It's so fluent, that I don't even realise that an attachment has used a windows program to view it.

  • Smooth experience for what could be very complicated

    • by Jimbuktu
    • Jul 20, 2014

    Have been using Parallels since version 6. Each update gets better and easier to use. Runnning a virtual machine can be very complicated but they do a great job of making it easy. If you want to dig in to the advanced features you can, or you can go with the basics and keep it simple. Each version has been very stable and I've had very few issues. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that I've had an occassional problem when upgrading and the Knowledge Base support info on the website could be easier to use. I've often had better results searching for soutions on Google than within Parallels support. But really that's true of many websites. Overall a great product.

    I have shown several friends that are in the same camp as me. We want to get away from our PCs and transition to the Mac OS, but there are just some things we still like doing on our PCs. Parallels has COMPLETELY bridged the gap. It truly works like a breeze! You are effortlessly in one environment or the other. I would and have already highly recommended this product.

    • May 1, 2014

    I was amazed at the performance of Parallels in running windows on a Mac. Couple of years back when I tried using VMs (not parallels), I was not impressed due to lack of good user experience and slow performance. Stepping into this again after so many years and experiencing Parallels was just so great. I don't think I'll be testing any other product any more now. Parallels is just what I needed. Thank you Parallels team for the great product

    The trackpad control is MUCH better than the Ubuntu native implementation. In the native, I found the trackpad to be unusable on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The Parallels version seems to behave just like the Mac. Very nice.
    Still waiting for my Firewire camera to be usable on Parallels Ubuntu :-)

  • Surpassed VM Ware Fusion

    • by Bill S
    • Apr 24, 2014

    I previously used VM Ware Fusion, but recently made the move to Parallels. In the past, neither program had telephone support, just email support. Now that Parallels offers incredibly knowledgeable telephone tech support, coupled with a new superbly streamlined interface, the choice was simple. And the fact that Apple retail stores sell only Parallels and not competitive offerings added credibility to my decision to use Parallels.

    MS-Windows now runs more stable under Parallel on Mackbook. its so easy of increase RAM, Disk Space and dual processor with a finger tip.
    You don't know whats you are missing, until you use Parallel.

    A great way to run Windows on your Mac computer. It has easy installation and is well designed to in the "Run like Mac" mode. This makes it very easy to switch between Mac OS programs and Windows OS programs. Well worth the investment if you have even just one or two Windows-based programs that you want to run.

  • Fast virtualized GPU

    • by F. Mathijssen
    • Apr 16, 2014

    I bought parallels mainly for software development for Windows. I am working on a graphics engine and Parallels 9 was the only virtualization package that had a DX10-compliant virtualized GPU so the choice was easy. To sweeten the deal, Parallels 9 is super fast on my mid-2012 non-retina MacBook Pro, although I do recommend using an SSD when you do any sort of virtualization.

    • by cjmcdonald
    • Apr 16, 2014

    So I have a VM for Win7, WinXP, Win8 and OSX.
    I do my training screencasts on the OSX environment so I can configure and set up pieces without changing my real OSX machine. I regularly troubleshoot on the windows VMs with teachers and staff and, personally, I use Quicken, Steam and MS Office under Win8. It reliably works (as well as Windows works, anyway).

  • great support

    • by apopkamike
    • Apr 16, 2014

    some yrs.ago the support was not the best or close to it. Now they are the best!! Far above Apple or Quicken. Chad worked with me for several hrs. repairing several areas in my XP and Mac Pro systems. Now the XP works well and the Mac operates faster than before. He told me that when I up-grade to Win 7 or 8 they will help me if I have loading problems.

    Parallels brings the best of Windows in a Mac environment... I use it to run Windows 7 in my MacBook Pro, and Windows run more efficiently than in a PC environment. Updates, backups, up-time, down-time, runs faster. All peripherals are available and switching between systems is a breeze. And then in coherence mode, its like the fusion of PC and Mac world.

    For some stock trading tools I have to use Windows. Happily using MS Office 13 and other Windows programs on my Mac. It's quite seamless and makes Windows more robust, usable and useful. Parallels has always been rock solid and is quite zippy even on my 3+ year old Mac.

    • Apr 16, 2014

    I highly recommend this product.
    It has helped me get the best of both worlds (mac and windows) on my MacBook Pro.
    Parallels has allowed me to use software not compatible with mac on my "parallel" windows on my mac laptop!
    For example, in my clinic my Electronic Medical Records software runs best on Mac system. However, believe it or not, our clinic's Practice Management software (billing and scheduling) does not run on mac. Parallels solved this for me.
    Love it.

  • not for every mac

    • by LO
    • Apr 16, 2014

    working with parallels is very easy and useful, but you must have, at least, 8 GB RAM.
    Mac OS + windows 7 take about 6 GB.
    i tried to use in a 4 GB mac air but it didn't work - it runs very slow.
    but, of course, it's worth it.

    • by georgeu
    • Apr 15, 2014

    An amazing product that is sleek, fast and stable. Runs Windows just as if it were running stand alone, but inside Mac OS/X. Makes using Windows apps on your Mac easy! I just couldn't live without it as I need some Windows apps like Microsoft Office that just aren't the same under the OS/X version. I program in VBA and that just isn't supported on the Mac version. I have owned VMWare on the Mac and it just did not seem as fast or as well integrated as Parallels. Can't recommend it enough.

    Although I love Mac and working in the Mac environment strictly, several programs still available in Windows environment only. After reviewing products of Windows, I decided to install Parallels for using Windows 7 in my Mac Pro. I am glad that I had Parallels in my Mac Pro so that I don't need another desktop computer in my office just for Windows programs. Highly recommend and will purchase another Parallels for my macbook air, if I need Windows program during traveling.

With the stability of an apple computer and the professional tools running on windows I know tomorrow I'll be good to go on the next assignment with no problems

    Thank you, Parallels team.

The only problems are screen related: I can't keep the 90 degree rotation on my additional display and need to drop out to Mac Preferences to reset this on each Parallels start; problems with trying to use (unsuccessfully) the full Retina HD resolution.

    I like Parallels because I don't have to know anything about it. It just allows me to use my Windows based Quicken and Access when I want them, then use the fully integrated software of iMac and iPad for mail and internet. I use Open Office for word processing and spreadsheets which is installed on the Mac side and has worked beautifully. For photography and video I will be using the Mac side aps to make slide shows and store my pictures.

    When I started working at a multinational large corporate construction business, I had the only MAC but with Parallels installed I could keep the IT dept happy. I was able to install a 100% complient corporate environment that helpdesk could remote access and trouble shoot without even knowing I was on a MAC. This allowed me to have an open MAC environment at the same time that interacted with the PC environment allowed me to access network locations with Apple applications.

  • The Bomb

    • by Javier (YME46)
    • Apr 14, 2014

    I run my business with a Mac but some of my programs are Windows based and not available for Mac, and this is where Parallels has come to be the knight in shinning armour. Parallels has assisted and facilitated my ability to stream line and run both OS at the one time, thus minimising the need to log out of one and into another or to have 2 computers running simultaneously as i go from one OS to another.

    Parallels has also benefited me in the sense that i have been able to maintain all my current programs and not required the need to find Mac compatible versions.

    I can't stop complimenting the Parallels team on the great work done with this program and all the ongoing updates that we receive it has been a god send and a blessing. i have used some of Parallels competitors products and they just don't stack up to the benefits and ease of use of Parallels.

    I would recommend Parallels to anyone considering running both OS. I have actually encouraged my father to look at adopting this program following years of resistance.

    I bought this program specifically for a cooking program I have used for years . . . which could not be transferred to my iMac. I had input nearly 1500 recipes . . . a DISASTER! I bought a small PC laptop, which was not satisfactory. Now I have quick access to my hard work.

  • fantastic product

    I use a couple of programs in Windows, that I would normally have to shut down and reboot to access. Now I can simply swipe over to my parallels desktop where I am running Windows 8, and access the programs. Its great!

    Can't find anything to complain about this product. Recently filled out a few applications using Parallels that couldn't run on Safari. Proved to be very useful. What more can I ask for? I'm running a full Windows 8.1 simultaneously with Mavericks. I enjoy the fact that I don't have to choose between which program I want to use at the start up from my mac. I can start, and switch between anytime I want. Great!

    Parallels used to be great because of coherence. That's not really a killer feature anymore however they're still the most stable and fastest Hypervisor for OSX you can find. Several 3D apps that won't run under VMWare Desktop will run no problem with parallels.

    I needed an XP SP3 environment to run VIDA, a Volvo proprietary diagnostic package, and was loathe to try to build an old box with an old OS. Parallels booted up my old XP image and it communicates to my Volvos just great!
