With Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac, you can seamlessly run both Windows and Mac applications without rebooting. Innovative and indispensable new features include cloud storage optimizations for iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive. The Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac also supports OS X Launchpad in Windows applications, and provides Windows 8 users with a Start menu and Windows Start button. Parallels Desktop 9 delivers much improved performance for some of the most common scenarios and operations, such as 40 percent improvement in disk performance, virtual machine startup and shutdown are now up to 25 percent faster, and customers can suspend their virtual machines in up to 20 percent less time than before. 3D graphics and web-browsing are also made noticeably speedier, with up to 15 percent improvements for both.
Cloud Services Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac supports iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive optimizations with your Mac and your Windows virtual machine, eliminating duplication of files locally.
Enhanced Windows 8 and 8.1 Support Parallels Desktop brings back the real Start menu, and lets customers use Metro apps in a window instead of full screen.
Security Center Easily access and install complimentary security software subscriptions to keep the Mac and Windows virtual machines safe from viruses and malware, all from one location.
Enhanced New Virtual Machine Wizard The New Virtual Machine Wizard makes it even easier to create new virtual machines, automatically locating operating systems on your machine or letting you manually select a range of media types to install.
Power Nap Support On a Retina MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air, the Power Nap feature now extends to Windows and Windows apps, so virtual machines and all Windows applications are always up-to-date.
Thunderbolt and Firewire Storage Device Support For convenience of everyday use, customers can connect Thunderbolt and Firewire devices to either your Mac or your virtual machine – just like you do with USB devices.
Rating: 3/5Good for new users, little improvement from Version 8
This review is from: Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac - OEM
Pros: Smoothly functioning virtual machine software optimized for Windows 8.1. With adequate resources, this can be used to run just about anything including games. This can also be used to install a variety of other operating systems as well.
Cons: There isn't much improvement from the previous version of Parallels Desktop 8. There's a lot of buzzwords to describe the changes, but little observable functionality to justify paying extra money for this version over the previous one.
Other Thoughts: For first time users who get a good price, this is a good place to start for virtual machine software. But, also consider the previous version to save some money as you won't find much difference between the two.
