Hi all. For the last hour, I have been searching threads and the internet for the best route to take and decided that I would just ask. I have an early 2014 Macbook Air 13 inch, 4GB Ram and 128gb drive. I would like to run Windows 7 (or 8) so I can play Steam games (nothing heavy, but light casual games). I have recently became a big fan of Steam games and unfortunately, most of them are Windows only. My fiance' has a Windows 8 laptop, but, I love my Mac and want to use my own computer. I know about Boot Camp, which the consensus says that's best, but, I've also read issues with trying to use a USB stick to load Windows onto it. And to be honest, I'm scared to try it for fear I may screw something up. I don't necessarily CARE that I have to reboot to switch, but I'd rather not have to. However, I'd like the best performance under the circumstances. For my purposes, would I be better off using Parallels 10, or Boot Camp? From what I read, using Parallels only creates a virtual world and some programs will lag in performance, but I'd love being able to switch back to OSX without rebooting. Also, If Boot Camp is the better choice, would I need to purchase a downloadable version of Windows, versus using my fiance's computer to get Windows (I read that's how it works using Parallels)? Thanks in advance for any assistance!
