I just recently switched back to a new iMac 3.06, 4 Gig system after using a PC for several years and I need some advice about running a few Microsoft programs that can only be used with Windows. I have read all about the differences between VM, Parallels, and Bootcamp but I am more confused on what I should use for the few programs that I need since reading so many conflicting opinions and reports. A brief background...I am decided to make a big career change and I am back in Law School but I am required to use a few PC programs such as MS Onenote for outlining and creating case briefs as well as a few other PC programs. Other than a few applications, I do not need Windows for anything else. Do you think VM or Parallels is the best bet for me or should I just stick with the Bootcamp that came with the system? In addition, I just want to verify that getting a full version of Windows XP Pro 32-bit is the best bet? Thank you to anyone who can give me some more clear direction.
