Starting as a first year engineering student I was required to run a modelling application that was only built for Windows. Being a Mac user, Parallels made it so much simpler to switch between the two operating systems and to get my work done!

I use this software for my CAD programs. As a student I am always thinking of new designs and because I have a Mac there are really no great versions of a CAD for it. Now with Parallels Desktop 9 I have an awesome setup. Try the 30 day trial you will love it!
My University frowns on Apple anything, especially computers, because it is an engineering university and engineering software is primarily for windows operating systems. Parallels Student version allows me to have the blazing fast speed of OS Mavericks on my Mac Book Pro Retina 15" as well as run programs such as PSPICE on Windows 7 Ultimate seamlessly.
I am an Anthropology major with a minor in GIS and Parallels allows me to use the student versions of ArcMap and Pathfinder Office so that I can do my homework at home rather than using the computer lab which saves a lot of travel time and headaches with coordinating open lab times! This has been awesome! Thanks!
