5 out of 5 eggsUnparalleled?

Pros: - Installs VERY easily.
- Can install in VM _OR_ use existing BootCamp partition.
- Quite configurable for the button pushers and ini file tweakers among us.

Cons: What I received was a "software" box that one might expect if a DVD was involved. All you really get is an activation code. Waste of resources. Should just be able to get activation code directly from Parallels.com.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Works as advertised; Allows you to install a license for Windows (or other OS(s) - even more that one of them) on your MAC to run those "Windows Only" applications you need even though you otherwise only use a MAC. It slows your Mac down a little but only when you have it running The Windows products. If you purchase it now (Around August 2014) they will automatically later send you a free upgrade to Parallels 10 which is compatible with the upcoming Yosemite OS for MAC and seems to function smoother and better than version 9 on my Mavericks current OS.

Cons: Could be a little better documented for the user on how things work and how to use it. REMEMBER you STILL have to have a legally licensed copy of the OS you wish to install like Windows.

Other Thoughts: Getting to a place where I can theoretically go MAC if I wish. My home has several NAS file servers and MANY Windows devices. LOTS of shared file folders. Many heavily used common applications. We are thinking of converting a number of replacement desktop and or laptop machines to Macs( when their time comes) .

Parallels is making our test machine closer and closer to being able to make that leap.
