Can I run Windows on a Mac Mini?

Yes, a Mac Mini will run Windows and do it well. You can use Boot Camp to boot directly into Windows, however, if you would like to utilize both MAC and Windows features simultaneously, we recommend running Windows under a virtual machine using either Parallels or Oracle Virtual Box.

You will need to purchase a licensed version of Parallels, while Virtual Box is a free application. Please note that running Windows with Boot Camp or as a Virtual Machine, still requires the purchase of a valid Microsoft Windows license. You can provide your own or ask Clarity to provide one on a per month use basis.
