So, I have a need to run Windows 10/11 for some support/admin tools that are x86_64 Windows only. Currently I have an '18 Mac Mini running Parallels, but it's about time to pop for an M-series Mac for testing that will eventually become my desktop machine.
From what I've read, Parallels can run Win11 ARM, and it in turn can emulate x86. Question is, is the performance usable (my current machine ain't no barn burner, so top SPEED is not an issue). Is the performance difference between a Mac Mini and a Mac Studio for something like this, large enough to perhaps warrant buying a Studio Max?
Anyone else out there been in the same position?
Realise this is quite old now and you may no longer require a response but anyway... I'm by no means a heavy Window user but like some others I need it for some specific tasks. I run Windows 11 ARM on my M1 MBP via Parallels and it works a treat. Unfortunately, Jumpcloud doesn't support Windows on ARM. I've installed the agent and the Win11ARM device appears in the console but that's about it. Such a shame.
Appreciate that feedback. You're welcome to submit it as a product improvement, if you haven't already.
