    Hey, im planning on purchasing parallels to use instead of boot camp, but i have a couple of questions.

    1) Do I install parallels then it tells me how to install windows w/ it?
    2) Will it run ok, or will it lag and be slow?
    3) Is using the sims 2 in parallels a good idea?

    Thankss

    hmm.. is it better than parallels? I heard now that parallels doesn't have 3D virtualization, so the sims might not work.. will it work on fusion?

    I like Fusion better but neither is worthy of gaming. It's best to use the free Bootcamp for that.

    VMWare Fusion is on sale today for as low as $10. That might change your mind...

    Does the new version of parallels still suck the ram dry? I had to go to 3 gigs on my white C2D iMac, or else osx was unusable...
