Latest OS support
Want to use OS X Mavericks (10.9) and Windows Blue (8.1)? It works!

Windows 8 is easier to use with Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac
Unlike the "Start button" planned for Windows 8.1, we bring back a "real" Start button experience, giving you the Windows 7 Start menu experience.
Run Modern (Metro) apps in a window instead of full screen - you can use them side-by-side.

Shared DropBox and Google Drive folders
When using Dropbox and Google Drive from both your Mac host and your Windows guest, your files get duplicated. This feature fixes that so you get optimal storage space.

Power Nap Support
With Power Nap, your Retina Display Mac or MacBook Air sleeps but your Mac applications stay up-to-date, so you have the latest information when your Mac wakes up. This functionality is now brought to the Windows virtual machine, e.g., running Microsoft Outlook.

Seamless workflows
Connect Thunderbolt and Firewire storage devices and designate them to connect to your Windows virtual machine.

Performance
Better graphics than ever, longer battery life, pure power throughout.

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.
