So I just got my mac and I was to be able to use windows on it too, and I came across these two programs so I was wondering which one is better. Why? I have a macbook pro 15 ci5. Thanks.

I dont know about parallel desktop, but vmware is fine, it can be a bit hardware intensive if you want it to run two complete operating systems on a computer at the same time. But you can limit the amount that vmware takes up too. Once you've got a decent amount of ram (1-2 gb of ram is ok but I'd recommend 2gb) you'll be fine with it.
