Your Mac is a mighty machine, but in some ways it’s got some pretty human problems. That includes getting messy and catching a bug. The occasional spring cleaning or malware scan are well and good, but what you really want is a complete toolkit that covers everything.
Your Mac needs a checkup from the neck up, to use the technical term. Lucky for you, Intego’s premium bundles of apps for Mac are deeply discounted right now. Check out some of the helpful tools in the bundles below.

Intego premium bundles: For a healthier Mac
Intego’s Mac Premium Bundle X9 is a great tool for Mac checkups. Actually, it’s a bunch of tools, including ones for organizing and securing your Mac.
Mac Premium Bundle X9 (65% off) has all the tools in the Mac Internet Security X9 bundle (60% off) and then some. And the top bundle with a virtual private network for safe surfing is Mac Premium Bundle & Privacy Protection (VPN) (70% off).
Mac Washing Machine X9
One app in the bundle is Mac Washing Machine X9. It offers a tool for reclaiming disk space by clearing file caches, downloads, logs, unemptied trash and duplicate files, which can take up a ton of space. It’ll even toss unused languages. (Let’s be honest, chances are you can’t even read Mfantse.)
It can even clean up your Dock and desktop, showing you which apps you use most. That enables you to make smart choices about which ones you keep within reach.
Depending on your circumstances, Mac Washing Machine X9 can free up gigabytes of space, which means way more room for photos, music, videos and other files you actually care about. Plus, this all makes for a leaner, faster Mac.
Also included is Personal Backup, which offers a great partner to your Mac’s built-in Time Machine. Create bootable backups in case your Mac hits a snag, or multiple backups for different machines.
You can even schedule backups so you won’t worry about forgetting. The backups copy only new or changed data, so they use the minimum drive space necessary.
VirusBarrier X9 and NetBarrier X9
This Mac bundle also helps keep you safe online. VirusBarrier X9 and NetBarrier X9 offer protection from malware and privacy breaches.
For example, you can decide which apps are allowed to send data back to their developers. And, yes, Macs can get viruses, so you can set up automatic scans of files whenever they’re accessed. The software automatically updates its library to keep the latest threats at bay, including Mac and PC malware.
Got kids? ContentBarrier X9 keeps them away from inappropriate online content. A full set of parental controls let you filter out gambling sites, pornography and other unseemly sorts of websites.
You can also create kid-specific profiles, and whitelist specific pages so your kids can access them even with filters in place.
There’s even a tool for limiting screen time. If only saying “time’s up” were enough.
Five Mac tools, one low price
All of the above apps are included in the Mac Premium Bundle X9. And we’re just scratching the surface of what these utilities can do to keep your Mac tidy and secure. What other purchase can you make that includes top-tier Mac antivirus, two-way firewall, parental controls, and a powerful backup utility?
The whole thing is clearly designed by people who love Macs, as evidenced by the apps’ clean, intuitive interfaces.
It’s also reasonably priced. Right now, you can get a one-year license, which usually goes for $84.99, for just $59.99. Or grab a two-year license for $109.99 (normally $158.99). And if you’d like to try before you buy, you most certainly can.
