I'd been looking for a copy of Parallels for ~$50 for a while so this a welcome surprise! It looks like you can probably sell The Division for roughly $20 making Parallels pretty cheap! Thanks, OP!

No problem! I just started a trial of it as I was looking for something to allow me to seamlessly run Windows exclusive apps without emulation. The Coherence mode is certainly magic! I may actually play the game once I get it, but we'll see. Smilie

I got one from previous bundle deal for $32 on newegg.com and sold the game for $25 on ebay. After fees and shipping, I end up about $15 out of pocket. Parallels 11 was an OEM version but had no problem getting the version 12 free upgrade. I guess they consider that ok since it's technically bundled with the game software. I switched from Parallels 8, so I've been holding out for a while.

Too bad division would not really run well on Mac with Parallels.

I too took advantage of the previous bundle deal for $32 and after installing and activating version 11 received a code a day later for version 12 which I have since installed successfully.

Note of caution, last year I took advantage of a similar deal--buy version 10--get free upgrade to version 11. However, I waited two weeks after receiving to install version 10 and since I was 3 days late from their 10/31 deadline, I was denied the free upgrade to version 11. Even escalating my call to a supervisor had no effect. Parallels is not at all a customer friendly company. Take note. Fine product / horrible customer service.

Nice! Sad I missed that, but $40 isn't too bad, especially if I end up selling the game vs. playing it. I think most of my friends are already burnt out with the game though.

What's The Deal Here,

Why is this not getting more thumbs up? People rather just pirate Parallels?
Looks awful darn solid to me. Someone please enlighten me.

There lies my question - newest MacBook Pro with i7, 16gb, and Radeon 370x. If I put Parallels and win 10 pro, would win 10 see the Radeon and run the game fine?
Prob better asked in their forums....

I don't think it would run fine. From my past experience with virtual machines, the CPU alone takes about 10% hit. I think they emulate graphics too so you won't see the radeon straight on. Just use Bootcamp for those situations, but I would just use a desktop Windows computer for gaming.

Unless you really want the game you can get Parallels 11 off the Bay for ~$25 with a free upgrade to Parallels 12 through Oct 31. That's what I did Big Grin

True That I Guess,

I have never run across it that cheap. Although I am glad I didn't pull the trigger. It looks like the overall opinion on the game hasn't improved much. Oh well.
