Mac Blue-ish Screen of Death

I recently purchased one of the new MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo laptops. The laptop is well engineered and offers a great way for an interface designer to explore multiple operating systems with a single computer (or so I thought).

I purchased Parallels software to allow me to run Windows, and as soon as I ran the software the computer crashed. This is essentially the Mac version of the blue screen of death. Everything locks up, I can't move the mouse I can't cancel the operation. Here's what it looks like:

The screen text in the center of the screen reads...

You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart button.

Hey Mac, I thought you didn't crash?
