Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac (OEM Version) is the upgrade for Parallels Desktop 7, and now features the use of Mountain Lion's Dictation tool across both PC and Mac, drag and drop simplicity for email attachments, and an enhanced Parallels Mobile App for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Parallels Desktop for Mac allows you to run Windows apps and programs side-by-side with your Mac OS. Using an Intel-based Mac as your starting point, you can run your favorite PC games, applications or programs from your Mac desktop. No more dual-system rebooting, no more compatibility checks - if it runs on your PC, it should run on Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac.

The Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac adds new features, like a 30% increase in graphics performance compared to previous versions, or a 25% increase in speed when you start, stop and resume Windows. There is also an enhanced Parallels Mobile App (sold separately through the App Store), which allows you to copy-and-paste, enjoy audio, and access your Mac and Windows programs with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

Other enhancements include the option to add Windows apps to the Mountain Lion or Lion Launchpad to quickly launch Mac and Windows apps you use the most, or the ability to enjoy your Retina display with your Windows apps. You can also drag and drop files from the desktop onto the Doc Icons for Outlook or other Windows email clients to add them as email attachments.

Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac takes advantage of Mac OS X Mountain Lion's features and applies them to Windows programs, like support for Launchpad, Dictation, Notification Center and Mission Control. If you ever wanted to experience life with dual systems, this is the program that allows you to do it.
