I've assigned 2GB of memory to a Parallels VM with no trouble. What version are you using?

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.
You can also download a fully functional trial version of both products. There's really nothing to lose in giving them both a test drive to see which you prefer.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
