    Guys need your professional opinion before I make a purchase. Running PARALLELS should I have a 2 GB of RAM or 1 GB is fine?

    Thanks for all of your advice I really appreciate it.:)

    I have decided I will go for the 2 GB Thanks a lot!

    I say to err on the side of overkill and go for 2GB.

    Well 2GB is always better, though Parallels should be fine with 1GB. It really depends on what you want to do with it.

    For RAM, more is always better..
    Once you get to 2GB+ however, you should have a specific need. But if you can afford it, go for 2GB min, you'll be happy that you did.

    Yes, if all you intend to run is Parallells, then 1GB will be enough, but I assume you want to use some applications as well, but in OS X and in Windows. Then you'll soon wish you had 2GB.
