    Hello to those of you with great Mac wisdom, :)

    I have a MacBook Pro, bought it this past July before they changed.
    I have to run Windows for work... right now, I have my Mac partitioned and I run XP but HATE having to switch back and forth. How good is Parallels?

    Frankly, I feel like this Windows stuff is a violation of my precious MacBook and I HATE doing it. It is however, my business. The question is, should I "violate" my MacBook with Parallels, etc or should I just spring for a $600.
    PC and call it my work laptop?

    Any input would be appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.
