I was searching on google shopping for parallels 5.0 and it came back with this site. Has anyone ever bought from them? I have never heard of them and was wondering what the story is as it seems too cheap to be valid. I know it says license only, but does that mean i have to get the software from somewhere else? If so where?

Well they seem legit, and have plenty of good reviews:

What it sounds like you'd be buying there is a serial number for it, nothing more. Meaning they will probably just mail you a piece of paper with the number on it (or e-mail it). You will have to get your own copy of the software.

I am not sure how Parallels does its business, but you can probably download a free demo and activate it using the serial number this site provides.

I would really shoot them an e-mail first and find out, those are just my guesses based on what I see.

Anyone buy from them? I am more concerned with handing over credit card info than losing $10.
