Amazon.com Mac Software Sale (DaddyDeals)

Amazon.com is having a big ol’ Mac software sale through June 7. There’s a heap of hot steamin’ DaddyDeals, with many a useful program available at a nice price. Check it out.

Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac

 

The cheesy “Wow!” on the box notwithstanding, Parallels Desktop is a useful piece of Mac software that allows you to run Windows without rebooting. Or to put it another way, you can run Windows in a window on your Mac. Why would you want to do this? Maybe there’s a game only available on Windows and you have a Mac. You can use OSX’s built-in BootCamp, but that requires rebooting your machine. With Parallels you don’t. Here’s a video that shows what I mean:

That’s nice, but what’s the deal? Regular price is $79.95, sale price is $54.99. That’s 31% off. (I didn’t do the math, I’m taking Amazon’s word for it.)

Other bits of bits you might want to scoop up include writing software Scrivener 2 (regular price $45.00, on sale for $23.99, a 47% discount), and popular screenwriting program Final Draft 9 (list price $299.99, on sale for $149.99, which is a full 50% off – half!).

There’s also various Adobe titles, Rosetta Stone language software, and more specific stuff such as Manga Studio 5, which helps you (or your kids, or both) create comics. (Unfortunately for the art-challenged among us, it doesn’t help you draw them.)

So go forth and buy the software! Browse the available titles by clicking the link below. G’wan. You know you want to. No pressure. But, you know. You should click the link. (Click the link.)
