i just bought my first macbook pro 13" couple of days ago, i have to admit it is way better than PC so far.
here is the configuration:
macbook pro 13"
750 hard drive
so here is the question, i have to install some software for college that mac does not support, like blackberry softwares, and a web design software ( my college does not support mac officially, so all the softwares are windows based) and windows servers and exchange servers.
---- for windows which should i choose: bootcamp or parallel desktop?
----i am even thinking to return my mac and get my old windows pc back from my sister because if do all this bootcamp stuff it is gonna complicate things (i like to keep things simple) like switching between two OS.
so, what is best thing for me get a windows PC or install windows on Macbook
I really need some honest suggestions here

Unless you are doing very CPU intensive stuff in Windows, going the VM route with VirtualBox (free) or VMware Fusion or Parallels (both paid) would be my recommendation..
The beauty of the VM is that you can turn it on and use it without rebooting OS X and also you can suspend/resume it anytime very quickly.
