Im planing on buying a mac, but i've been a longtime windows user and want parallells so that I can run all my windows apps, games and other stuff only capable with windows. And with the new graphics card the new macs comming with, im planing on doing a little gamining. But I've heard that Invidia optimus won't run in windows(parallels), but only use the integrated graphics card(Intel Hd graphics 4000), while os x uses the invidia graphics card. So do i need to launch windows from the Bios, or can i have windows 7 running in parallels, still using the invidia graphics card, or swiching.
