I installed the latest update to Parallels Workstation, beta 3, and am now even closer to removing the Boot Camp partition on my MacBook. I am Slinging on the MacBook Pro with SlingPlayer running in Parallels Workstation and am a very happy camper. The SlingPlayer runs quite well now that the Parallels team updated the audio driver in this latest beta. I am amazed how responsive their team has been and I will be making the purchase of the application very soon now.
I now have my naval architecture software, SlingPlayer, and Office running without a hitch. I still need USB or Bluetooth support to sync my devices and for a few other things, but I am becoming much more of a fan of the virtual solution over the dual-booting solution.
I am going to post some video taken with the Nokia N90 soon showing the dual boot solution (Boot Camp) and Parallels Workstation solutions running on my new MacBook Pro.
I am also trying to come up to speed on all the cool apps Apple provided on the MacBook, such as the iLife suite that I plan to use to get my video up and running to my blog.
BTW, the Nokia N90 syncs (Calendar and Contacts) without a hitch using iSync. My Treo 650 also syncs and I am trying to get the alpha version of The Missing Sync working, but can’t seem to get the Smartphone talking with Missing Sync via Bluetooth.
