The #1 Rated Solution by Apple Online Customers to Switch to a Mac and Run Windows Without Rebooting*

Switching From a PC to a Mac Made Easy

VMware Fusion's migration assistant for Windows makes it easier than ever to transfer your entire PC to your Mac and make the most of your Windows software investment. Get the best of both worlds and have access to your Windows programs and all your files from your old PC directly on your Mac, whenever you need them.

Run Your Favorite Windows Programs

Run your favorite Windows programs alongside Mac applications without rebooting. Whether you want to run Windows XP, Vista or 7 on a Mac, VMware Fusion's easy install feature will get you up and running in no time. With the ability to run Windows-only programs like Microsoft Project, Access and Internet Explorer, VMware Fusion turns your Mac into the ultimate computer for compatibility.

Use Specific Windows-only Devices on Your Mac

VMware Fusion 4 lets you use Windows-only USB or Bluetooth devices on your Mac—from GPS receivers, to cell phones or mp3 players and other input devices that are only supported in Windows.

The Perfect Complement to Boot Camp

No more choosing between Windows or Mac at startup, VMware Fusion lets you run Windows and Mac applications side-by-side directly from your existing Boot Camp partition.

Upgrade from Parallels

If you have used Parallels Desktop to run Windows on your Mac, VMware Fusion can import your previous Virtual Machines and take them to the next level. With its unique combination of ease of use, performance and stability that can only be delivered by the leader in virtualization, it's no surprise VMware Fusion is the #1 rated solution by Apple customers to run Windows on a Mac.*

* Based on US Online Store reviews on 9/07/2011 of VMware Fusion (4-stars), Parallels Desktop 6 (3.5-stars) and Parallels Switch to Mac Edition (2-stars).
