    right click he desktop, select properties then display settings and select a resolution that fills the screen properly. Mines at 1680x1050 on my 17" MBP

    It also seems that Parallels will retain two different windows settings, one for full screen, and one for windowed mode. I have setup Parallels to use the 1680x resolution at full screen but use the 1280x844? resolution in windows mode, becuase in windowed mode @ 1680x, you can't see the bottom half of the screen.
