I want to hear from Parallels users

12 Aug 2006

Rick Wakeman

Is anyone out there using Parallels on either a MacBook or MacBook Pro? Hard disk and RAM needs aside, do you find that it works as a testing environment for Windows and Linux? I’ve been burnt by previous experiences with sluggard Virtual PC, so for the last 3 years I’ve been using a PC Laptop. It was this dual-computer usage that led Leigh to call me “Web Design’s Rick Wakeman”.

However, the sheer convenience and electrical economy of one-machine-to-do-everything sounds too good to be true. Is it? Please leave me your thoughts and experiences! Thanks!

Update Thanks follks, the message came through loud and clear. An MacBook Pro is now on its way! :D
