    I switched from a PC in October 2013 to a MacBook Pro. I love my Mac, but really was missing using WordPerfect, for in my work I create a lot of booklets, and MS Word just does not do it as easily as WordPerfect. I was using Bootcamp, but having to restart my computer to use it was inconvenient. So, having read about Parallels, I downloaded it. Super simple installation, and it took all the Windows 7 information from my Bootcamp partition without me having to do anything special. I very highly recommend Parallels for anyone who has to run a PC only program on a Mac!!

    Laptop, Desktop, Mackbook, etc. really tired of having to maintain them, and sometimes frustrated that PC hangs up, sometimes really hate myself.
    Now thanks to PARALLELS, my life is much more easier, I have all running under Parallel. its like having Mobile Phone with dual sim slot.
    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.

    It is the most stable it has ever been. I have not had it crash since the last major version update and even then I cant remember how far back it was.

    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.

    Parallels Desktop 9 is a great way of being able to run Windows or any other OS on a Mac, allowing immediate access to the OS without having to reboot. I have one or two Windows apps for which there are no comparable Mac products and running a Windows virtual machine under Parallels I can effortlessly switch to these apps and transfer information between them and a Mac app. It's also great for trying out a new Mac OS by setting it up as a virtual machine so you can decide whether to upgrade your current OS. I would certainly recommend Parallels Desktop 9.

    I run a one-man PC repair business and use a Mac as my main machine for obvious reasons and not least because I have to have a working machine at all times. My invoicing system is built on WordPerfect and Paradox Database. The choice was to redesign for NeoOffice or run Parallels. Very easy decision way back with Parallels 3. I've never looked back and love being able to keep old versions of Windows on my Mac for reference and to be able to play with lots of kinds of Linux. I currently have five VMs including the awful Windows 8! It's never let me down so I strongly recommend it. If anything Windows works faster on my Mac than it would on a PC.

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.

    I purchased Parallels about 12 months ago when moving from a lifetime of Windows OS in their various (confusing) guises to Macs. I had a Windows version of Photoshop which I wanted to retain because the cost of a new, Mac based program was for me, uneconomic. Having Windows on my Mac at least initially was also a comfort blanket for me. Parallels did what it claims to do - transferred my Windows system across effortlessly and by cradling the manual and the website, allowed me to make the correct choice of how I would use windows on my Mac. It has since performed faultlessly. The need to have a security blanket has long since gone as anyone moving across will tell you. Windows plays nicely on my iMac, or at least as well as it ever did on my PC, updates itself as required etc. When Windows loads, it is spooky at first because it looks exactly as it did on my old PC. Every program "works" and the Mac system shows up in Explorer so that i can easily transfer data files between the two systems using drag and drop. Yes, it does appear to have with it a sometimes noticeable time lag, and this increases if Time Machine is doing a backup but that is to be expected. Photoshop is really demanding on either system. Technical: iMac running Mavericks 10.9.2 , 8Gb 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, Windows 7

    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.

    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.

  • Parllels Desktop for Mac - Top Notch Virtual Machine

    • by spayz
    • Apr 15, 2014
             

    Using an Apple Mac-mini at home is a great experience, most of the open-source software I use is available cross-playform and runs on an Apple Mac.
    But, there are a couple of commercial applications that I have used for years in Windows that are mission critical for some of my hobby work - Parralels is a great solution.
    Running Wndows in a virtual machine integrates seemlessly with thw Mac, and the speed of the virtual machine is great - even on my old 2009 Mac-mini.
    Copying the virtual machine so that I can run older internet browsers in Windows XP is great for web-design work too; and even running a virtual Linux machine is an option.
    All of these options mean that Parallells for Mac is great for my developer work, my hobbies and anything else I can throw at it.

    Windows being as complex as it is, I had trepidations about installing & using Parallels to run Windows apps on my Mac. But all fears were groundless - an amazingly easy install process, it brought all my apps & data over from my PC and everything ran fine - no need even to re-install Windows apps as you normally have to do installing on a new PC.

    I had one problem during installation - my own fault - and Parallels support proved excellent.
    I've now been using it several months and have had no problems - nothing but praise for this product.

    This software has enabled me to completely go PC free. Windows opens quicker than on a PC, runs in the background and I can run programs that I can not get Mac software for.
    I have only been a Mac user for 6 months but with the benefit of Parallels I am very unlikely to go back to a PC.

    I do a lot of Windows development on my MacBook Pro. Parallels makes it easy for me to jump in and out of Windows, carry forward Windows and OSX as if they were integrated, sleep and resume, etc, etc, etc. It's great

    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.

    Parallels allows me to run my preferred OS on Mac for the majority of my tasks on one thunderbolt screen while having windows open for auto cad, MS project etc on a second thunderbolt screen. Very handy and time saving.

    Recommended for professional use.
    In my line of business I have to keep working with old piece of equipment, and I have found the solution to all my problem using parallels for mac. I have up grade trough all the versions and I have never experience a problem. Perfect for moving my old computer in a virtual machine reaching the true hardware independence. 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.

    I have found Parallels allows me to simultaneously run Windows reliably inside Mac. Being able to cross platform at the slide of my finger, capturing information, dropping it in place while accessing common folders gives me everything I need.
    What do I want! Just to turn it on and it works and thats what Parallels does.
    Good job guys..

    I don't need to think about it - it just works! Very stable and does what it needs to do. The hot-swap of resources is very useful. 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.

    As a student, one of my courses requires a windows os, and after buying it from a sale with an extremely good discount, i am pleased that the software runs perfectly fine as it allows me to do things I want to do without problems.

    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.

  • MAC and corporate environment

    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.
