Hi *,

has anyone out there tried to use the new MBA with Parallels? I'm particullary interested of the performance from Visual Studio (from time to time I must work with Visual Studio :-( ).

Greetings
Peter

Parallels 4 uses incredibly low resources, much lower than Parallels 3, and in my experience has proven more stable and reliable than VMware Fusion.

Give it a try, the free trial can't hurt. Its streamlined XP install is very quick, whether you have a cd or an iso file install.

Search here as many have used paralells . For most tasks paralells handles well. MBA won't crash but expect any CPU task to take twice as long like compiling.

VS is tough to work with on a 13" since windows has poor windows management. Expose on xp is badly needed.
