With Parallels Desktop for Mac, you will seamlessly run both Windows and Mac OS X applications side-by-side without rebooting. Drag and drop files between Windows and Mac applications and launch Windows applications from your Mac dock. Powerful performance lets you run Windows productivity applications - even graphics-intensive ones - with ease.
Whether you use an iMac, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, Parallels is easy to set up. Simply download the software from Parallels' website, enter your key and you’re up and running. Then you can enjoy any of the Windows programs you need – even Microsoft Office 2010, the gold standard of productivity software – right on your Mac.
Pros: Excellent software. Never have to worry about windows only applications or devices. Actually runs 3d pretty well too.

Pros: It can use your Boot Camp partition, giving you the best of both worlds: run Windows applications seamlessly within Mac OS X, while keeping the option to boot into Windows for full hardware acceleration in the most demanding games. The Full Screen mode is properly integrated with Mountain Lion, and Coherence is easy to switch to. Everything just works.
Cons: It's not made clear how to go about activating Windows in Parallels if you've previously activated in Boot Camp. I had to call Microsoft (it's an automated process, use the dial pad to enter the code that you get in the activation control panel inside Windows).
Other Thoughts: Some games (Darksiders II, Saints Row The Third) have noticeably reduced performance in Parallels compared to Boot Camp, but that's what makes the one-install-two-ways-to-run feature so great. For most apps - even games - I don't notice a performance hit. For example, League of Legends on my Retina MacBook Pro has no problems under Parallels.
