BE VERY CAREFUL with Parallels 5 Desktop. I used it without BootCamp installed and I find during the firmware upgrade (february's build) that even with USB set to auto use in Parallels, it was not quick enough to detect the 9700 upon restarting during the firmware upgrade. I was NOT happy with that.
Still give it a try.
