    By Prettyboyfloydkf
    Whoever Made this really put some thought, time, and effort. Great stuff!!!
  • Can get trial to even activate

    By DaleC
    Says there is a free trial. Ok. I click that. Opens the app store. Ok. Then says I need to authorize a subscription that will start billing at the end of 14 days. No problem. I authorize payment. Then I go back and try to use it, the same loop again over and over. The app store sent me confirmation emails and everything. Too bad. I had used Parallels years ago and liked it. But no matter what, it won't actually let me try it for 14 days. And I need to verify a particular app works well first
  • To expensive

    By spam dex
    I understand that companies need to make a product but 79$ is to expensive from my pocket. I don't recommend anything such as this that is to costly.

    i get to run my favorite os in the worst os! i finally got rid of the mac experience!
  • Awesome Product! Must have for PowerQuery

    By MikeAudiDriver
    Thank you to Parallels, I am able to run Windows Excel to perform Power Query functions without the Apple OS software limitations. This is a huge lifesaver as I love my MacBook(2012) and Mac Mini (M1, 2020). The subscription is 100% worth if you need to work with Excel and do not want to purchase another computer separately for excel. Thank you Parallels, customer for 2 years.
