So, I have an upcoming exam in two months which requires me to use Excel Windows version, not the OS X one which I already have. I was pondering whether it would be worth it to use BootCamp or Parallels in order to deal with it. I know very little about these two solutions, so I was wondering if you could help me make a choice. Question 1: If I use BootCamp, how much space will it take from my drive? I have a 250 SSD, and currently there's 145 GB free. And secondly, will this partition my drive? Can I remove Windows when I won't need it anymore and not lose any data? Question 2: Is Parallels perhaps a more practical solution? Can I run it smoothly with my computer specs? (see signature). Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
