    I recently purchased the new 2011 27" iMacs.

    My question is: Should I use Apple's Bootcamp? Or should I spend the money and get Parallels Desktop?

    THANKS :apple:

    That depends. What do you need to do in Windows?

    I have a 3D Program (3DS Max) that is Windows native, and I need to use it for my videos.

    Ok, I'm not particularly familiar with that program, but depending on how resource intensive it is, it may run better in bootcamp. If you need to run it at the same time as some of your Mac apps, then I'd probably go the parallels route.

    3DS is pretty resource hungry. Go for bootcamp - it'll give you significantly better performance

    switch

    Hey hello I also work hard on 3DS max it's better for you to do it in boot camp & if you can switch the files in Mac you'll love working in OS X with 3DS max, i did that but with genuine person who knows how to do it perfectly otherwise you'll lose important data (i did it with my senior teacher for 3DS max) :apple:
