Hey all here's a brief explanation of my story - currently own a Retina Macbook Pro - I heavily rely on Microsoft Office (word, powerpoint, excel, and one note) because I will be using this machine for school. Currently, as some of you may know, all of the Office for Mac apps look horrible on the retina display (text is blurry and hideous). I've thought about purchasing Parallels to run Windows 7 just for Microsoft Office - but my questions are- How do saving documents work? Can I access word documents from Parallels straight from finder on my mac? Can I save documents from parallels to my documents folder on Mac? Will the text be clearer? - I'm guessing yes on this one because Windows can just scale the resolution. Is this the best solution for me? As I side, I heavily rely on Microsoft Office and to be honest, I don't want to run Bootcamp just to get work done. Thanks all!!!
