Found 11th Feb 2014
Parallels for Mac upgrade for those with version 7 or 8.

The price has not changed but it now includes 1Password (It's awesome and I'm a big fan) which on its own is £34.99 and that makes it a great deal.

What's included:
Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac Upgrade (From version 7/8)
1Password 4 for Mac
Fantastical for Mac
Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac
CleanMyMac 2
MacHider
Parallels Access for iPad

Brilliant deal including all the extras. Heat!!

Only a brilliant deal if you want or have a need for those extras.

I'd rather they removed the bulk and lower the price of the actual product

Parallels? Why to pay for something you can have for free - check Oracle VirtualBox...

Coming up as 44 quid here

VirtualBox is nowhere near as versatile or as capable as Parallels.

Having bought Parallels in the past, with all the extras this is a brilliant deal!

Shame it's just an upgrade. Don't have parallels and would have liked this but not paying 64.99 for it.

Agreed, they had a special offer on over the Christmas period, which bundled a lot of other products but retained the same price, just wish they'd have reduced the individual prices

For those who need a good and free secure password system, I recommend KeePass. There is Mac and PC versions, as well as MiniKeePass for iOS. Stick it on a USB drive and encrypt it with TrueCrypt as well, then you're friends will think you work for Mi5!

Fantastic deal.

or just use the free Apple Keychain, easy to use on a Mac and the only solution that works in Safari on IOS

Can Virtualbox easily and officially boot a Bootcamp partition? last time I checked it couldnt.

Virtualbox lacks the ability to launch Windows apps from the Finder or the Dock and Windows guests likewise can't launch OS X applications

It's good but it's not quite right. Apple Keychain is fine if you don't want to manage multiple passwords easily and create strong passwords. It's more of a remember password service, not a password storage system like KeePass.

I've been a 1Password user for 18 months as I use a Mac at home and a PC at work so I need to share all my passwords between both but like I said the major downfall with any password manager other than keychain is the inability to use it in Safari on IOS, I have an Ipad mini2 and Iphone both with 1Password but I still use it together with keychain when using Safari.

No such app on the Apple Apps store as 'keepass'

iKeePass is on the App store on my iphone, £0.69

Not a bad price but I have most of the other apps and Parallels 8 is still working fine on mavericks. It's also likely either Parallels or VMFusion will be included in the Spring Mac Update Promo bundle which normally kicks of around mid March.

I've bought Parallels twice now, and I'm not happy. Every big Mac OS update breaks it, and you can't run it without paying for a newer version.

Cant bring it up on my mac.

Ill try and google it.

LOL it gets 2 stars out of 44 reviews!

Virtual Box does the job brilliantly, Parallels is anyway overpriced, used their trial once, cant find any benefits of using parallels over virtual box.

Like Virtual Box but could not get around hardware driver issues for things such as USB support from what I'm able to recall. Like Parallels too but think it's frustrating that further to OSX Mavericks being launched the version I'd bought no longer works. Kind of forced into upgrading and that's not something I've taken a liking to in all honesty but they did advise of incompatibilities in fairness to them. Think the upgrade should be more competitively priced. The bundle seems better value than buying Parallels only though.
