as much as i dislike windows, there are some programs that require it. rather than always switching to my shitty dell laptop that i throw in the corner with hopes that it will break after every time i use it, i need to figure out how to get parallels up and running on my MBP. right now i see two issues that i need to figure out/take care of 1. find out how to get this working 2. obtain a copy of windows (preferably not vista) that won't cost a bunch if anyone has any advice or experience i would love to hear it. i'm new to the board and would have searched but i can't locate the search button (i assume its a member only feature?). so if this has already been discussed a simple "STFU PEPE" and a link to the right thread will be sufficient. thanks.
