Run OSX and XP at the same time and do that cool cube switch? Do I use bootcamp?
Parallels. BootCamp can only run one OS at the time.
So how do I set that up? I have my copy of XP and my macbook will be hear in the morning and I want it set up right! Could you please advise me how to do this properly and if their is a dissadvantage to running it in parallel?
kinda depends on what machine you're running?
Buy Parallels. $79. Install, follow directions. Done.
Buy parallels, then there are easy step-by-step instructions. Parallels so far has no USB 2 (faster than USB 1.1) and bad 3D support, so games are a no no. Get VirtueDesktop (free) for the cube effect.
Macbook, 2.0, 160 gig!
The previous poster was referring to Parallels the product.
It's also very advisable to download Fan Control as the Mac laptops thermal control is screwed and the fan only starts up when the laptop is hot enough to heat food. Parallels will make the Mac do more work and you will come across this situation more frequently.
Apple.com says parallels is sharewear, so do i still pay for it?
Also.. the cube effect happens automatically if you run Parallels (Windows) in full screen.
Yes. Shareware means money. Freeware means free.
It's not shareware. Well, not really. I guess you can get a free trial license from them for 15 days.
