Parallels is a good product, and I have used it to run two virtual machines simultaneously to test things in Windows Server 2008. I do not have sufficient RAM for a third virtual machine so I want to replace the laptop.

I don't know how that compares with your power user requirements. I believe you can also replace the Apple OS with Windows on a MacBook.

Subject: [WEB4LIB] Feedback Request - Using Parallels 9 for Mac

Is anyone out there using Parallels 9 for Mac?  Do you have any feedback on running this?  The PC laptops that we are able to purchase for staff don't have the processing power that we need, but we can order Macbook pros and configure them as needed.  A new staff member needs more processing power than what we can get on the PCs, but also needs to use native Windows Microsoft Office tools and a few other windows programs.  Using Parallels would solve this we think, but are there any implications for speed, or performance? Remote Desktop is also an option, but they will need a reliable way to change back and forth between operating systems

Thanks in advance
