    What do you want to do with your MBA? What version of Windows? What version of OS X do you have installed? What is it you are trying to do?

    The answer depends very much on what you have and what you want to do.

    As the others have said depends on what you want to use it for.

    BootCamp is free and good, but requires a shutdown and reboot each time you want to switch programs. Parallels just jump from one to the other which is excellent if using in an office/business environment. If you are a gamer then BootCamp.

    And always supply all vital information.

    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
