Installed Parallels 4.0 and Window XP on my new MBA rev B today. Install went smoothly.

Now, I'm no Windows fan (have to have it for a few work apps), but this Parallels thing actually makes Windows kinda fun. The Coherence feature makes it seem like the Windows app is just another OS X app.

Performance for Office, IE, and Firefox are all very good.

Startup and shutdown of XP is also very fast.

Very impressive :D

This combination runs great even on my RevA 1.6/80. Vmware Fusion 2.0 - not so well.
