Ok, I'll give you a more info as to why it'll run just fine. My current main Mac computer is a Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook; the first Aluminum Macs that came out. I have a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU and a 4GB RAM installed. Not to mention my machine is based of the traditional and slower HDD.I don't know too much about parallels or the mac OS (long time PC user), is there any lag or lack of responsiveness when running it on the MBA?
And would i need more SSD space to run it?
I'm running it right now on my 11" i7 with 8GB. I ran it on my 4GB 2011 system, and before that on my 2010 with 4GB.The title says most of it!

Do you guys think it can effectively run Win 7 in parallels?
I'm the same but I use VMWare as it's the industry standard for Virtual machines, as apposed to parallels.Running it now.
Company has VPN and remote access control software that only runs in a Microsoft environment.
Couldn't it be said that Microsoft Windows is the "industry standard" for business PC's? Yet here we all are, running OS X...I use VMWare as it's the industry standard for Virtual machines, as apposed to parallels.
Yes, it'll work - BUT before spending money on Parallels, be sure to read this thread: http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=261103Do you guys think it can effectively run Win 7 in parallels?
Which is better? VMWare Fusion 4 or Parallels 7?
Wow.. I just checked out that link, that's CRAZY how awful the customer support is... Probably will be going with VMWare based off of the lack of customer support, I don't want to get stuck purchasing something that will be out of date in a few monthsCouldn't it be said that Microsoft Windows is the "industry standard" for business PC's?

Which is better? Tough call and it seems to ping-pong version to version as well. Plus Parallels 8 is likely to come out this fall (v7 buyers should get a free upgrade if it comes out within next six months).
My recommendation is look at VirtualBox which is free.
Yes. Parallels 7 was updated to work with Mountain Lion. I have it and it is working fine. That said, Parallels does update every year, and they tend to "hold off" on new features to prod users to update. Don't be surprised if Parallels 7 isn't updated to run on the successor to Mountain Lion.After reading some of those posts I'm wondering do those of you who use Parallels and VMWare have mountain lion? Does it work with the new OS?
