I'll be start going to college in mid-August and I need to run on Windows on some programs in courses I'll be taking. Parallels seems to release their updates every mid-September. I don't know if Parallels 9 will be worth waiting. In general, are the next Parallels update worth waiting for? There are so many cheap good deals on Windows 8 and Parallels right now, so I'm really confused on what to do without buyer's remorse! Also, should I go for Windows 7 or Windows 8? I'm not going to use Windows on Mac for gaming, I already have a PC for that. I bought the Air for a specific reason. Thanks.
