    Hi,

    I will be studying Software Engineering starting in a few weeks, and was advised by the engineering student society to purchase a mac and run windows on it. So, I have the 256 gb i5 macbook air.

    I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what method i should use to run windows on my computer. I have done some research into the pros and cons of each, but since I don't really understand what I will be using it for in school, I'm a little bit confused.

    Thank you,

    Alex

    I'd go the virtualization route and run VMware fusion
