4 out of 5 eggsGet Desktop 9 not 8

Pros: Parallels does work. I have to really measure myself and be fair because I am upset with them and don't want to be a useless 1-egg review. The product is good.

Cons: Parallels Desktop 9 is already out and getting Desktop 8 can really prove to be a waste of time, don't expect any courtesy free upgrades from Parallels. I had no clue that my new software was already obsolete and I explained this to customer service and they really couldn't care less.

Other Thoughts: Regardless, the product can work well. If you want to use the latest versions of Mac OS (Mavericks) and Windows 8 from bootcamp partition it's really just overall a great idea to get the newest version in my opinion. So buyer beware, not of Parallels Desktop the product, but that the version is not up to date. Hope I was able to be fair, I'm actually livid with Parallels customer service but it is what it is and Windows 7 works great and is really the most practical choice in any case.

5 out of 5 eggsSo much smoother than VBox

Pros: Easy Install. Easy Setup. Import your existing VMWare or VBox discs. A lot smoother at operating as well.

Cons: The "seemless" mode that is on by default is a bit annoying, but you can turn that off easy.

Other Thoughts: Parallels has a special right now that if you buy Parallels 8 between 8/15/2013 and 10/31/2013, you can get a free upgrade to Parallels 9. There is a form on their website, and it only takes a few days for them to send you the upgrade key.
