But how do you run PC software on a Mac?
Running Windows on a Mac
If you need to use Windows and PC software on your Mac, you can either install Windows 10 in a dual-boot environment with Apple’s BootCamp Assistant or run Microsoft’s software alongside macOS using a virtualization solution such as Parallels Desktop.
The first method gives Windows, apps and games direct access to your Mac’s hardware, allowing them to run at full speed. The second method gives you the convenience of running both Windows and macOS simultaneously but at the expense of performance.
If you need Windows, be sure to pick Windows 10 because it sports a streamlined interface that smoothly handles transitions between a mouse-oriented interface and a touchscreen-optimized interface. More importantly, Windows 10 supports universal apps which run across PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and Mixed Reality.
The familiar Start menu is back, and can be customized with apps, people and files
Other perks include support for fingerprint and face recognition, an updated Start menu that can be customized with apps, people and files, the Edge web browser, a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, DirectX 12 and more.
License keys for Windows 10 Professional typically retail $50 or more. GVGMall is offering a license key for Windows 10 Pro OEM for just $15.32 a pop, but you can apply the redemption code BLOG20 for an additional 20% discount.
For those wondering, GVGMall’s Windows and Office keys are for the OEM versions. According to Microsoft, OEM licenses are identical to the full retail versions except for the following:
- OEM versions don’t include direct support from Microsoft support personnel
- OEM licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on
- OEM versions allow all upgrades except swapping a different model motherboard
- OEM versions cannot be used to directly upgrade from an older Windows edition
