I am thinking of running MAC/PC parallel on my machine. Is it good for testing of web and flash applications? I currently have a dual boot. Appreciate any advice on this. Also really appreciate any user experience. Thanks.
I just got to know that the performance will be slower as we are sharing the RAM. Any other thoughts.
I do this all the time. Also if you dont want to buy parallels, you can use free VirtuaBox on the mac. It also has a seemless mode that works a treat.

PS performance is also only an issue if you run out of free ram. You can monitor this on the mac using free "menumeters" utility in the taskbar
I work on my Mac on a day-to-day basis, and use VMFusion to run Windows images.
I did find out that I needed to get extra RAM on my machine, but other than that for the last 2 years I have not found any issue or problems related to running tests on my parallel Image.
