    This is my first macbook pro. Going from PC to my first mac. I have a few computer programs that I need windows for. Does bootcamp run the new windows 8? if NOT, should I just get windows 7 and pay small upgrade fee later when bootcamp does run 8?

    Do I need to buy special version of windows 7 to run on my mac?

    Runs 7 for sure

    Probably runs 8, it is only $39.99 to download and try or download the beta for free

    Parallels runs 8,so I would guess bootcamp would also run 8

    No special version

    Are you running it? Did you test it out?

    Do you prefer parallel opposed to boot camp? If so, why?

    Yes, I'm running it and it works fine. Just check de dozens of others topics here about the same question and you will see many users are already using it just fine. ;)
