    Guess where I'm stopping on the way to or from work tomorrow. I've been kicking myself that I let the lower price go. Maybe I'll pick up an iPod Shuffle too. ;)

    Thanks!

    Is this available on Outpost.com as well or just retail stores?


    Why or why are there no Fry's in New England?!?!?!?!

    here it is:
    Parallels @ Outpost.com

    Rebate Form

    Shipping is a bit pricey for those of you not near a store.

    Picked mine up on the way to work.

    NOTE: the little sign in the store seemed to imply that the $59 pricing is only good through 8/1, while the rebate is good throught 8/3...

    :mad: Not so sure how good of a deal I got.
    Parallels won't eject from my Combo Drive.
    Down for a week or two and Apple won't make any promise that I will receive the program CD back.:mad:

    Sorry to hear about your problem.

    FWIW. I usually just install the downloadable version instead of the CD for anything like this that is available in both forms. That usually gets me the latest version up front instead of installing the stale version from the physical CD. Then. just use the key provided with the physical product.
