Two options are available. In order to assess which option to use, it is important to understand each option, their limitations, then to configure for best performance. Running Windows in Boot Camp is a native feature of the Mac OS X operating system, therefore this is the most financially affordable option since there is no additional software to be purchased. However, users may not prefer this option since they are not able to run both OS X and Windows at the same time and a reboot is required to gain access to the Mac software. The Windows partition is configured during the Boot Camp install; this is an important step for optimal performance. Users should carefully consider how much CPU, Memory and hard disk will be available to the Windows OS, this is of course based upon how many cores and memory is available in the MacBook. Users must purchase the Parallels software to use this virtualization option. The advantage is that users can run both Windows and Mac applications without rebooting. Configuring this VM is critical for optimal performance. This configuration is not suitable for a graphically intensive, multi-threaded application like ArcGIS Pro.
