Parallels Desktop 6 (and 9 other apps) for $49 through Mac SuperBundle
The wonderful thing about software bundle offers is that they always have a couple of gems that you can pick up for a song. The current Mac SuperBundle, which lasts through Noon PDT on July 27, 2011 has a real diamond in it -- Parallels Desktop 6.
For US$49, you get Parallels Desktop 6 and 9 other apps. Buying it from the Parallels online store, Desktop 6 would set you back $79.99 (you can get it for $50 on Amazon). The Mac SuperBundle also adds in the Food Network Recipe Manager ($40), the Lion-compatible Money 4 ($39), DVD Remaster ($50), Intego VirusBarrier X6 ($50), and four more apps.
If you've been thinking about setting up a Windows or Linux VM on your Mac, but haven't decided whether to buy Parallels Desktop 6 or VMWare Fusion 3.1 ($80), or grab the free VirtualBox, this bundle might be your impetus to pick Parallels. Too bad they can't toss a copy of Windows 7 into the bundle as well!
