You sure about that? Why would there be two versions then?



Hmm. That is confusing. All I know is I can download the full version and get a new licence key. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Wondering, did you get a full license for an upgrade price even without owning any previous versions? Have you installed successfully?

This is upgrade only? You need Parallels version 10 or above.

I switched from Parallels to VirtualBox some years ago when my version needed an (expensive) upgrade, and can honestly say I haven't missed Parallels for my usage (mainly testing websites on various Windows browsers).



Main reason I switched to Parallels is battery life...on my Macbook Pro retina I get around 11hrs with OSX, 8hrs with a Win7 VM in Parallels and a weedy 5-6hrs running a Win7 vm in Virtualbox

You would need to purchase the full version as this is just an upgrade for a previously installed version. From memory when you enter the serial number it then sends a request to their server to see if it's all correct and above board… I think?!

This should be scorching hot, even if this was just for Camtasia it would be hot. I've used Parallels 8 for over a year now its a rock solid product.

This is definitely a bundle that priced at over £100 would still offer great value for money, at £35 its an absolute steal.

I was refusing to update parallels and just had this offer pop up. Cracking deal! I was just being a tight ass as parallels is completely seamless offering what feels like a native windows experience, even for advanced stuff like multi monitor support etc.

I was going to get it upgraded at some point but I was definitely going to be buying camtasia in the coming days so this deal is a bit of a dream to get it less than half price (vat regged) as well as the other apps

"1Password is the best password manager by far"

Horses/Courses but I find lastpass to be totally seamless at a fraction of the price (well, not with this deal!)

how does parallels compare with VirtualBox.



Virtualbox does all the basics well, but Parallels is incredibly streamlined. Just a couple of my favourites:
- Its express install of VM's lets you install windows in a couple minutes, without having to fill in anything or hit any prompts.
- It does all the guest additions stuff without any work.
- It also shares folders automatically, everything, making the two OS's feel like one.
- The performance is miles ahead, you can actually use parallels to run windows only games (not perfect, but pretty well considering), and can run graphics heavy programs as well.
- Its sharing of USB and Card Readers is easier and less buggy than virtualbox
- It also handles bridged network connections pretty well, something virtualbox doesn't always get right.

Its not half bad with Linux as well.

Not too sure. I've only used VMWare Fusion as a comparison and really, they're much the same. I would imagine VirtualBox might be okay if you don't really need to do much. There's a good review of them here macworld.com/art…tml

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.

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

LOL it gets 2 stars out of 44 reviews!
