    i currently run Vista through Parallels on my MBP. Are there any benefits to deleting the virtual machine, installing Vista through Boot Camp, then running Parallels from that partition? Or am I better off just sticking with the virtual machine installed through Parallels?

    For virtualization, its better straight from Parallels as you have it. The BC option lets you use full Vista as a choice on start up...

    that's what i wondered - if performance would take a hit if i was running parallels from the BC partition. the only reason i would do BC is just to see what Vista looks like with the whole Aero Glass thing.... yeah, probably not worth it :p

    Personally I turned Aero off after a day, way too headache-y...
