Running 24" iMac with 4GB memory & Core2Duo processor @2.4GB. When I had Parallels 5 installed, the INITIAL launch (restore) of the program was 35 seconds, consistently. With Parallels 6, same computer, same OSX version, the INITIAL launch (restore) is 55 seconds ! ! ! I thought this version was supposed to launch faster. I have given priority to the guest OS, given 2GB memory, disabled AERO. Have I missed something? I am REALLY DISMAYED that I paid $50 for a SLOWER version of Parallels. DANG ! ! ! !
