Parallels only runs on intel hardware, virtual pc (i think) only runs on PPC hardware. Parallels is much much much faster, because it doesn't have to do as much hardware emulation.

thanks for narrowing it down. Curious about VM, i would assume it would support Vista just fine, right? They appear to both be priced relatively the same.
