    Hey I just got a Mac, and since all tools are pretty much for windows, I was wondering what you Mac users think is best to use, I think booting into bootcamp every time is annoying so I wanted to use parallels or vmware but I wanted to know which is best for performance of Seo tools,

    Can some one advise?

    VMWare is teh shit. It's so good I actually paid for it. Parallels is amateur hour.

    I want to keep OS X clean so I use a remote windows computer. Also does well as a scrapebox server. :)

    Otherwise tried Parallels and it was good but very hardware intensive (4GB RAM min).

    you could use wine. but then again, vmware, as suggested by most of us is recommended.

    Yep. VMWare is constantly being improved and updated so it pays to get the very latest version. It's one of the reasons that's it's worth paying for - so you can get the updates.

    I do most of my work on my Macbook Pro, but I still have my Windows PC to run stuff like SE Nuke, Scrapebox, and all the other Windows-only programs. I also run Bootcamp on the MBP, but it does get annoying constantly having to restart it whenever I want to use something, so I normally just walk over to my PC and use that instead.

    I'll probably look into VMWare myself since everyone else recommends it highly.
