Windows 8 arriving this month. Run it on a Mac? Parallels.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, October 19, 2012

With Windows 8 about to arrive, should you run it on a Mac?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It can be a tough choice for lots of consumers, should you buy a Windows computer …or a Mac.    Another option is to run Windows on a Mac and a company called Parallels makes it simple.   The idea says senior director of global communications John Uppendahl, is to let you run software that is only made for Windows.   And beyond that….

“If you want to experience Windows 7 or Windows 8 in the highest resolution possible, you can’t do it on a PC. “ So the best way to look at Windows is on a Mac? “On a Mac with Retina Display.  And Parallels takes it one step further because we do a little programming magic that makes the text readable so it’s not too small for you, the graphics look crisp and sharp and so you can experience the best of Windows and Mac in the highest resolution.”

The price, under 80 dollars and there’s a free trial at Parallels.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
