    I want to use my mac for windows too, but not sure what to get. Bootcamp or Parralels.

    Which one is more secure and is probably not going to harm your computer im guessing.

    Just need your opinions on which ones are the best.

    Bootcamp is free. How about that?
    All I know is that there is a margin for error (and possibly screwing your system up) with both solutions. Although I do not know if you have to partition your HD with Parallels.

    there is no partitioning with parallels. I prefer parallels because I can create multiple operating systems. For instance, I have a regular windows xp system, an xp system that works with my campus network, and a couple versions of linux to experiment with. Cost is an issue too.

    I'm looking forward to 3D graphics support in parallels because that's pretty much the major difference between boot camp and paralells.
