    Hi there,

    I have recently purchased a macbook, the white one with 2.16Ghz...

    My Question is? If I use parallels to run windows can I run all the applications I need in windows plataform without any kind of problems??Or I must install it natively??

    And another question, wath virtual machine do you advise me to use to have OS X and windows???Is parallels the best??And were can I download that kind of software??

    Tnks, and sorry for the bad english....

    english was ok ha. just use spell check. :)

    i started running parallels in coherence mode. man is it sooo cool. i've not tested very intense applications yet, but from what i did try, it seems pretty snappy.

    reading or searching some of the threads in the Windows on Mac forum would've answered these questions...

    but anyways:

    Parallels or VMware might work depending on what you need to run, if not there is always Boot Camp.

    they both work well enough. some people like one over the other, but there is no 'best'. they both have trials. try and see which one works for you.

    And if I instal some game in the windows platform running with the virtual machine it will run exactly if I instal it in a native application??

    (The games I refer to are games that the gma 930 are capable of run without any issue)
