Parallels Desktop for Mac allows you to run Windows apps and programs side-by-side with your Mac OS. Using an Intel-based Mac as your starting point, you can run your favorite PC games, applications or programs from your Mac desktop. No more dual-system rebooting, no more compatibility checks - if it runs on your PC, it should run on Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac.
The Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac adds new features, like a 30% increase in graphics performance compared to previous versions, or a 25% increase in speed when you start, stop and resume Windows. There is also an enhanced Parallels Mobile App (sold separately through the App Store), which allows you to copy-and-paste, enjoy audio, and access your Mac and Windows programs with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
