In Parallels you can decide how much RAM the VM machine will have up to 924Mb, it won't allow you to exceed that. It also recommends an amount, also recommends how much video RAM to set as well.

I don't know VMWare at all, but I am getting to grips with Parallels and am most happy with it - the more I get to know it, the better it gets.

I also didn't know that the VM guests will work WITHOUT Parallels tools - but not quite so well as the tools DO give extra facilities.

I wouldn't worry if I were you. You DO realise that you can download all the manuals BEFORE you get the software don't you? You can go to their website and download it. They also have a very vigorous and helpful forum too.
