I own a PC, so I didn't have to buy parallels, and the RAM helps my computer all around, honestly. The point I was trying to make was that I didn't know SAI could only reserve 4 GB of RAM until after I bought the extra 4 GB.
Gotcha gotcha. @_@ Muh still, too much effort to put it on your mac that way. Bootcamp is much more sufficient if you want it on your mac at all and you'll have better access to your other windows programs if you had some.
Maaaaaybe bootcamp will work. At least it's something to consider. I'm not to eager to replace Parallels at this point in time since it took some effort to set it up. Perhaps if there is no other solution I will go that route.
