I've tried em both and have read a bunch of reviews. for gamers, boot camp seems to be faster. for everything else, people seem to be using parallels. I'm not a gamer and not much of a techie so parallels has been working fine for me to run an XP machine for a couple work-related apps.

well they're both just for booting it, and when windows is booted up, it makes no difference.

well, that's not what i've heard necessarily. apparently parallels doesn't support the graphics it takes to run some real 3D heavy games on windows. so bootcamp seems to be the way to go there.
