New Mac user here. I intend to convert my current PC to a VM but, because of its size, I'd really like to run it from a USB3 external drive, if possible.
I've just got the Mac and would appreciate some help with suggestions about the best way to keep my PC programs running as a VM. Unfortunatly, I haven't allowed myself much time to get used to the Mac before emigrating to Canada. So many tips and tricks coming up on Google and I'd rather rely on advice from the lovely geekzoners.
I assume Parallels is the way to go. If so, has anyone successfully converted a VMWare VM to Parallels? I have an existing VM I also want to use with my MacBook Air, again, from an external drive if possible.
