Found 1st Nov 2006
Since I've ordered Macbook Pro, I need to find out where I could find Mac related software .. Thinking of buying Paralles Desktop for Mac and few others, educational or non-educational editions are welcomed. I've used froggle to search for Paralles Desktop and found few online shops that seems to have the same website design & prices but with many different names and addresses. I just don't know if they're legit online shops .. just too many of them..

What type of software are you after?

I'm looking after Parallels Desktop for Mac and MS Office for Mac.

We use the following two retailers for our Mac stuff at work; I'm not sure how cheap they are in comparison to others though.

Thanks 10bellies, had a check on the two websites and they seem to be from the same company (e.g. same stock level etc..). The parallels desktop for mac still quite expensive when adding the delivery to it .. cheapest I could find from a reliable source is at amazon.co.uk for £44.

Hi there,

just got my copy of parrallels desktop, downloaded direct from their website! works a treat, had a couple of very minor bugs (eg sometimes the mouse decides it's going to open a Apple program while its supposed to be in windows, but other than that seems okay.

NVU offer a web authoring tool free, Open office is compatible with the Mac, and sugar crm works a treat with the mac! ALL FREE just what I like

Failing that I've just order some items form Apple, with quidco discount it worked out a bit of a saving. Ebay is a good source, obviously have to be careful that its real software, but I sold my Apple works on there so there are people that are genuine and the chap got a bargin! sealed straight form apple so I bet he was chuffed!
