Last night my brother called me, which I love, and we talked about the next version of Parallels for the Mac.  He was telling me that the next version will work with BootCamp for running a guest OS.  This means you can install Vista on a BootCamp partition and then use Parallels to access its applications via the Mac OS.  Pretty nifty.

He also brought up the fact that Macs are very over priced.  For the equivalent systems he can get a Dell for $800 whereas the same Mac would cost $3000.  Can anyone justify this?  I can’t make a business decision to go with a Mac if they cost more than 3 times that of an equivalent Dell.
