I bought my first MacBook Pro today for college. However, I need to run Windows for a program that I need for school (Microsoft Visual Studio). Everything else I need has a Mac version/client. So, is it better to run Parallels or Boot Camp? I was thinking running windows XP with Parallels would be better, as it allows me to basically use my Mac as a Mac while getting Microsoft Visual Studio and letting me use the Mac versions of everything else I need. Do I still need to take all the nessescary precautions (virus protection etc) of a PC if I'm not going to be using the internet within Windows XP? Or will my whole computer be prone to viruses when running Parallels? Is it the same with Boot Camp? I hope this post is clear enough that someone can help me figure out which one may be the best for my situation.
