I just need to run a couple software programs that are windows only and have been stuck between a virtual box or cloud services. Both seem to have enough lag to put me off of using them on a regular basis. Running windows on this is very smooth. Compared to the other options I have tried this one is the first that feels like an ‘apple’ solution. Clean, great UI, and just runs smoothly. I plan on purchasing after my trial. Havent tried windows 10 gaming yet. This version so far just the trial only allows: – 8GB of system memory access of the 32GB present.
VMs run smoothly even when located on USB 3. Be nice if the had a month to month option as I only need this for about a month for school project. Plethra of options and abilities to explore and easy, very easy to use. Much easier than other VM mangers I have used. Fitting of MAC software in that it is easy to use, intuitive interfaces, and bridges the gaps with such feaures as allow access to you MAC documents so you dont ahve to have multipe copies of hte same files across your MacOS and the Windows 10 VM.
First, a note to all. If you need more advanced features, definitely go with Parallels Desktop 16 off of their website. This version is simplified for general use. Windows VMs are snappy. Before downloading your app from App Store, I missed the line in the description which said Windows VMs need a paid subscription.
If I didn’t, I would never download it. And it had made sense why Lite is free and Standart is not. Standart has great features that I might consider paying for but Lite has no advantage over VirtualBox. If I remember correctly, you didn’t have a Lite version at the beginning.
This also adds to the cost of Parallels Lite. As a summary, I may consider paying for Parallels Standart because of great features but will never pay for the Lite when its equivalent software is free. The free version used to support Linux. Parallels has opted to change this to a subscription based feature in an update. I would be okay with this if the new version was a separate app i.
Instead, auto-update kicked in, I find myself in front of a screen demanding a login not previously required when I’m trying to get unversity work done on a time crunch, and I find out that the software wants to charge me going forward after a trial period. Again, my biggest issue with this is the update to an existing app–most other apps that have gone to a subscription model have a separate app store listing for their new version to avoid this problem, or permanently grandfather in old users to certain feature sets.
If parallels communicated this change at some point, they did not do so in the app any time I’ve been using it the last few months, and I must say I’m very disappointed. Plus i had a key for windows and i never got to enter it Oh and through the adapter that is required to even use an Ethernet to hardline in I probably would have used the windows for other things too eventually I hope you find this helpful.
The problem came in when the application began taking up almost all of my hard drive space. Because of this, he referred me to Apple. After chatting with Apple and troubleshooting, they asked me to try a reboot and that worked. Second, there should be a warning about how much hard drive space you actually need to run it or strongly recommending an external drive because apparently a GB internal hard drive isn’t enough.
