    Found a game that I would really like to bring with me on the road to kill some time. Do I need to install Boot Camp, or is Parrallels able to do it?
    I'm on a MBP C2D and the game is "Real Flight 3.5" if you need any of that info. Thanks!!!

    Parallels doesn't currently do 3D/hardware accelerated graphics very well.

    If you already own Parallels, it wouldn't hurt to see how the game runs in it, but if you don't, I would stick with Boot Camp until you hear that Parallels is doing better with graphics.

    Both Parallels and VMWare have said that they're working on getting full graphics support for virtual machines running in OS X, so there's some hope. :)
