I have been a fan of all Apple products for their style, compactness and performance. Apple has always been a step ahead from its competitors in every manner. Apple product configurations are better than its competitors in every section.
Parallels has launched a new version of their desktop virtualization product for Mac, Parallels Desktop 3.0, which seems marvellous after looking its demo. You can watch the demo online here. But this comes for a price of $79.99, which seems fine for the Mac users. Mac based products never come for a small amount.
Microsoft does also provide a similar kind of product, Microsoft Virtual PC, which is also free of cost but does not provide the kind of integration Parallels Desktop promises.
