to add a note to this, bootcamp requires you to restart your computer every time you want to run a different os. in other words, you can't run windows and os x alongside.
parallels, on the other hand, is a virtualization software, meaning, it uses one os's resources to run another os inside it. that means, you can run windows os as an application in os x, or you can run windows in os x.
