I just purchased a new MBP, the 3rd Mac I have purchased in 5 years, and I am hoping this one will replace my PC. Unfortuneatley, there are still some applications that will require me to use Windows, so I am searching for the best scenario in regards to setup.

I know, the ideal set up would be not to have Windows at all, but that is not an option.

Here are the applications/uses I belive will require Windows:

1. I work for a Online Advertising Solution provider that has a web based interface. The full functionality of the interface only works in Windows. This will require the viewing of storage of flash video and animation files.

2. Office products: Outlook, and minimal use of Excel, etc.

Should I install Boot Camp or Parallels or both? Your guidance is appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks

I would try the demo of parallels first and see if that meets your needs. Personally I would prefer that option, that way I wouldn't have to partition my drive and have to restart to switch between OS's.
