Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac 1-year Average rating: Nov 6, by Paul on Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac 1-year I'm in the same boat and have decided a yearly subscription for the same price as a once personally owed educational license was the final straw for me. I'm now going back to VMWare Fusion. I've been a long time purchaser of Parallels, but no longer. Sorry to hear of your disappoint! Good luck with VMware, and be sure to check out OnTheHub's student and faculty pricing before making your purchase!
Mar 29, by Kevin on Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac 1-year This was an excellent software that with version 14 removed the option for one-time purchase in favor of a full-price annual renewal. No thanks. Partition and reboot for free. Mar 20, by Ken on Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac 1-year When TimeMachine failed to restore my Parallels, I thought it would be no problem, and that I would just buy another copy at the educator's discount, but that's not possible.
Suddenly they're gouging us with an annual rental for the same price. It's not worth it. Parallels has lost a customer, and I'll no longer recommend it to my friends and colleagues. Sep 4, by Nick on Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac 1-year I've been upgrading Parallels Desktop for years using onthehub for the educational discount.
While I love the new features in v. It comes with Parallels Toolbox and Access, which is new and can only be used through a subscription no matter where you buy it, but the main software purchase should be permanent. Awesome that you can get Windows from OnTheHub for free too. I usually skip a version because I find the new features are not enough to warrant the upggrades every year. Well it looks liks with v14 they are forcing me to upgrade.
Way to anger your customer base. May need to look at vmware next time around. Page 1 of 2:
A Windows installation disc, or other installation media for the operating systems you want to use alongside Mac OS X An Internet connection to download and install freely available operating system such as Ubuntu or Google Chrome.
Notes If you're using OS X Yoesmite or later, you can setup a second copy of OS X to be used as a guest operating system alongside your main system, without having to purchase or download another copy of OS X. Salinet Location: Brasil Age: Home User Owned Product: I would recommend this item to a friend!
Customer Videos: Verified Buyer Reviewer: Austarlia Age: Power User Owned Product: TimFrazier69 Location: Nashville, NC Age: IT Professional Owned Product: October 24, I have been using this software on my Mac for some backwards compatibility with MS Windows world and software.
Sad2Say Rating: As always, however, OWC customer service has been terrific. Verified Buyer Top Contributor Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Kankakee, IL Age: I like the ease of setting up most VM's, though Windoze Upgrades can be tricky. It allows me to run those occasional use Windoze or Linux software without having to keep a dedicated machine. The only drawback that drops it to a 4 star from a 5 is that it restricts the versions of OS X that you can setup. Currently, you can't go any further back that Mavericks.
My first Mac Mini was a Snow Leopard machine and sometimes I find that even in a VM, I can get certain tasks accomplished quicker than with all of the bells and whistles of newer versions.
Austin, TX Age: I also like physical media so this was win-win. I was really impressed with the Coherence mode and enjoyed the easy printer and file sharing - I literally had to configure NOTHING in my guest operating systems to access my desktop printer.
If you want a professional product which provides fantastic integration between OS X and the guest operating systems you want to run, this is for you! The Great White North Rating: Installed Windows 7 without a hitch, which is a plus for Windows-: Long Beach, CA Age: Anonymous Age: Hobbiest Owned Product: But Great Price!
January 1, Fast shipping and no issues with the item. Very Satisfied! Great price though! Australia Age: The only downside is the constant upgrades with OS versions. Do we really have to pay every single time the OS changes? Surely they could throw a free upgrade for loyal customers.
Of course this is a Paralles issue. What great about OWC, the cost of purchasing is discounted when picking up some great hardware. Thats a really good deal. Thanks OWC. NH Rating: Genoa, Italy Age: Indonesia Age: With Parallels the issue was moot. Most of the applications I use are either supplied within OSX or I was able to find cost-effective equivalents. But for the things that I just couldn't afford to replace, Parallels allow me to run them in a Win VM without a hitch.
When Yosemite was released I held off upgrading because I didn't want to pay the full upgrade price. On a conventional HD the performance is rather good. But when coupled with an SSD the performance increases dramatically. The only issue that I have had is that sometimes after upgrading from a previous version, you will need to "re-authorize" your copy of Windows.
For XP it worked easily. Win7 was a bit more troublesome. Marco Island, FL Age: I've explored alternative VMs, but for me, the features and ease of use Parallels provides makes it the clear choice. Antioch,CA Age: I tend to fix many Windows computers so I needed that one too. Now instead of haveing to carry 3 Laptops to locations I can carry one and take care of all 3 OS's at once. Its so simple anyone can do it. I have tried several Windows software titles and all run well.
As do all the Linux software apps I have tried and believe me I really tried to cause a problem. Great Software Anonymous Rating: I returned to Parallel's when 8 was released and happy that I did.
I haven't noticed a considerable difference going from 8 to 10, but took advantage of the upgrade offer when I purchased a Mercury SSD.
North Carolina Age: Over 65 Experience Level: Verified Buyer Top 50 Contributor Reviewer: January 5, Love it. Installed this and XP Pro.
No need to partition a certain amount of space, Parallels does this automatically, I guess. I only have one program I use, so it's easy, but you I open to FireFox and go from there. The site I want to go to has "only IE 8 and Windows 7 will work. Had to jump through hoops for that, but Parallels 10 made it happen. Very easy. Can't add any durability info, too new. Zurrieq, Malta Age: December 27, Being a student, and much of the software is available only on this platform, this software helped me work and browse seamlessly on both operating systems.
Spain Age: That's great! New York Age: I continue to be pleased with the work Parallels has put into Parallels desktop. It offers more features and functionality that all the other options, at least for my needs.
It continues to rule the speed and functionality tests. I keep waiting for a moment of regret that I didn't choose the competition instead, and that moment never happens. Please keep up the great work! Indiana Age: I think it would have been easier to make a separate boot partition with a separate install of Windows.
On the other hand Parallels had good chat support to get me up and running, and it's nice to be able to punch up an app without rebooting. Just be patient and you should be able to get things working fine. Fayetteville, GA Age: SoCal Age: I was happy with the earlier version and only upgraded because OWC gave me a good discount. I have moved almost completely away from the PC side so I don't really feel like I wanted to make the switch and I'm not sue it was worth it except for the compatibility with Miami, FL Age:
