I guess you could say having both machines kind of complete the puzzle when it comes to computing. Things like photoshop, indesign, and illustrator are awesome on the MBP, but i got windows on the dell for gaming, general web surfing, and windows is what i've been using for years up until i got my MBP a few months ago.
I should have mentioned that my computer use is strictly in the business world. I don't do games. Just not enough time in the day.
Yes, Windows will always be the choice for the gamer, because there just doesn't seem to be the development for the Mac.
However, now that I've had a chance to try Parallels on the Mac, I can see the potential of not only developing Windows apps on a Mac, but selling our Windows apps to Mac users.
After all, all these new Mac users that are migrating from the Windows world are probably not using their Macs for gaming ... right? So, they must have the same needs as the Windows world when it comes to business applications. If we can demonstrate to them that their Mac can be used to satisfy their business needs via Parallels (or Bootcamp) and Windows, then they are one step closer to meeting their day-to-day computing needs.
