    I just bought a new mac, the newest one with 4 gb ram and such. I'm running parallels but want to use my photoshop on vista, however, I don't want to run vista through mac. I know with bootcamp you have to either chose to boot up windows, or mac. However, I don't know if you can do the same with parallels. Does anyone know of a setting in parallels I could set up so that when I start my mac I go to Windows Vista? Running Vista through mac osx and using photoshop just makes the computer go soooo slow. I just want vista to work while working with photoshop? anyone know a way or is the only way to install bootcamp so that I can run only one windows at a time?

    Parallels is a virtualization app, that is it allows you to run Windows virtually from within OSX. To run Windows natively you need to use bootcamp.
