Boot Camp enables you to run Windows XP natively. The beta copy 
already has the native drivers. There is no speed degradation. It is 
not emulation.

Parallels seems to be virtulization, but not emulation. It is a true 
beta and does not yet have all the drivers needed.

The caveat is that you need an Intel Mac to run these programs.
