“Which approach you take to running Windows on a Mac will depend on how you balance the performance you hope to get out of your system with your need to proceed safely and risk-free. BootCamp will always deliver the maximum performance to your Windows apps, but Parallels Desktop offers greater flexibility and an easier, safer installation process. It’s also the better product for quickly dipping in and out of Windows – or any of the other x86-based operating systems it, unlike BootCamp, supports.”
Windows on Mac: BootCamp vs. Parallels Desktop
2006-08-02 Apple 2 Comments
I was wondering if Apple truly provided “Windows” drivers for “their” (or really intel’s) hardware. Looks like with Boot Camp, Apple does provide them.
I was thinking people would have to hunt down drivers.
The ugly thing about Parallels is that you cannot really use an external hard drive with it. There are times when you need a full-capacity NTFS-formatted disk for some apps and having USB1 support for it is just not good enough…
