    Any Mac users here running Windows VM's on Parallels -


    Hi folks

    I've a colleague who has a mac computer and wants to run Windows VM's on Parallels (that's a sort of well known VM software platform for using on Mac computers -- equivalent to vmware / vbox).

    Any users here who have experience on this stuff -- I have zero knowledge so I can't give any opinion - good or bad.

    Perhaps @pparks1 - you have some Mac kit - have you used parallels and if so was it any good for running Windows VM's.

    Thanks

    Cheers

    short answer is yes , It is worth the price tag, Windows 10 preview runs fairly fast and no bumps.
    Note mine isn't a top of the line . The highest OS it can use is el Capitan.
