"Parallels Desktop for Mac saves using two machines"
When needing to run Visual Studio or programs only made for Windows they can run in coherence mode without starting the Windows OS. Excellent program for the cost, even better with the student discount.
Requires a separate license of Windows. Takes up space on the drive for the whole OS when only one or two programs are needed under Windows. Requires a second IP address to run without any issues when using a browser within the Win OS.
