I knew this was too good to be true. You also need to buy windows software for this to work?
You expect them to include a full copy of a Windows operating system? Are you nuts

total mac newb, not sure if parallels is necessary, or if bootcamp will suffice. I don't think we will be switching back and forth between win & ios frequently, so restarting to launch one or the other shouldn't be an issue (this is the main advantage of parallels, right?) any other reason I am unaware of that would make it a good idea to jump on this?
still searching for a good deal for win os, not getting consistent results with search (if I search "win 7", about a million desktop and laptop deals, etc come up first). Any tips?
Question: because my MacBook Air has only 4GB, will Parallels get bogged down on it?
No. I had a few friends in 2010 in commercial software development on the first gen MacBook Air and they were already happy with it. Whatever you might lose because of lack of RAM power you more than make up through the SSD.
I run this on my MBP 13" (early 11) with 16GB RAM and a Fusion drive setup and love it. I even axed the bootcamp partition as it's not needed at all. I don't do gaming though, but for regular office use (Quickbooks etc.), the PC is super fast, just like a regular one.
