Has anyone had any experience with Parallels Windows 8 for Mac? I'm thinking of installing it on my MacBook.

Yes. What do you want to know?

I have it installed on my 15" Macbook Pro (2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM) and it runs perfectly fine.

I installed Windows 8 via Parallels 7 the day Windows 8 was released. What did you need?

I just wanted to know if you encountered any problems, it sounds as though it all went well. I just got a new MacBook Pro with Retina 15 2.6 i7 and will proceed with my installation.

Thanks all . . .

I did the dreaded upgrade to Windows 8 (Parallels warned users to NOT try this) and still I haven't had any problems.

I've moved this into our dedicated Alt OS forum.
