    Hi,
    I have the new rMBPRO and have Parrallels. I would like to put Windows 7 on there. Which edition of Windows have you found works best on there? And is it 32-bit or 64.

    Thank you.

    For virtualization - I prefer 32bit since you'll not really take too much advantage of what 64bit provides in a virtual environment.

    Parallels and Windows 8 Preview

    If I install Windows 8 Preview within Parralels, would it be OK to save documents within the Windows OS? I am concerned that when the Preview ends and the full version is available for purchase, I would loose these documents. I would imagine I could just save documents on my Mac OS??

    normally you get a period of time after the release date to upgrade, don't worry you won't loose the files, you can just transfer them over to mac if you want.
