I play poker and im getting a macbook pro when the new line comes out and since my poker software doesnt run on mac os i will need either parallels or bootcamp to play my poker.

Since i play 8 tables at a time, i could use every bit of screen possible so i was wondering whether parallels can bring xp into full screen when i was using it so i dont lose any additional screen with a border.

thanks

Yes I believe you can. If not I know VMWare does.
