What Industry Leaders Say

“THE BOTTOM LINE: Parallels Desktop is the easiest, fastest, and most tightly integrated app for running Windows apps or the Windows desktop in Apple OS X.”

“It’s always been astonishing that it’s faster to start up a Parallels PC than a real one. On my MacBook Air, I’m up and running in Windows six seconds after I double-click the Parallels icon.”

David Pogue, Yahoo Tech

“The software has been iterating over a decade and now makes Windows feel like part of the MacOS. You can also virtualize Linux, Android, and just about anything that runs on Intel chips including another instance of MacOS – great for testing macOS Betas!”
