Our Macs are pretty amazing machines on their own. The handle almost anything we throw at them with grace, elegance, and power. But there are some things it just can’t do out of the box. (Like run Windows, for example.)
The Mac Utility Bundle is one of our recent Cult of Mac Deals offers that adds a whole new layer – and level – of utility to your Mac…and at a fraction of what it would usually cost. We’re talking only $59.99 for 5 tremendously useful applications – which is a whopping 75% off the regular price!
Black Friday isn’t for a few more days, but that isn’t stopping Cult of Mac Deals from kicking things off early. First up is a utility bundle packaged to “supercharge” your Mac.
Parallels 8 was recently revamped to not only be faster and more powerful, but more importantly, now it plays nice with both Mountain Lion and Windows 8. If you’ve ever wanted to run Windows on your Mac, this is the way to go.
Nearly 20 years ago Snagit was introduced for Windows and it has quite a following. It has always been very successful as a Windows utility so it’s odd that it has taken so long to come to the Mac, but it is here finally and worth the wait.
The release version of Snagit for Mac OS X, a screen capture and image-editing utility, is now shipping after spending a year in beta. It’s a bit expensive at $49.95, but I think it is worth the money especially after years of using it in a corporate environment along with a slew of co-workers. Now I’ll have access to it on both platforms.
However, although Snagit on the Mac features the core feature set of the Windows version, that many know and love, it doesn’t have all the features of the award-winning Snagit 10 for Windows. Perhaps that’s why the Windows version is included for free. The serial number you purchase works on both platforms.
