5 out of 5 eggsDecent Deal on Special

Pros: Purchased this when it was on special for $20 and absolutely made a world of difference.

Cons: I really did not see any cons for this. If you are buying it you probably already know why.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't Encrypt hard drive

Pros: It's a good VM for running your OS.

Cons: Can't encrypt your hard drive and run this program. This is an "Oh by the way" if your hard drive is encrypted it won't work because the OS won't see the new boot partition because it's encrypted.

Other Thoughts: You need to decide if you want to secure your data or run this program because you can't have it both ways.

1 out of 5 eggsWill work with Yosemite but slower than v. 10.

Pros: - Will work with Yosemite.
- Comes bundled with another software title.

Cons: - Contrary to previous review, there will be no free upgrades to version 10 unless you made a purchase between 08/01/2014 and 10/15/2014.
- Missing some new features found in version 10.
- Slower than version 10.

Other Thoughts: - If you plan on running Yosemite, you should buy verion 10.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for new users, little improvement from Version 8

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.
