    Is macmall the only reseller offering free parallels with purchase of a mac? My sister lives in california and i i m trying to advise her where to buy a mac air. She cannot avoid sales tax thru mcmall if it is shipped to calif.

    :eek: I would hesitate to recommend MacMall to anybody...

    B & H Photo are really reputable. If she lives in CA, she would not have to pay sales tax.

    B&H usually has good deals on AppleCare, which I would advise when purchasing any laptop. Usually, Parallels is pretty cheap to buy in a bundle, you often see it as part of those $49 bundles, although I'm not seeing any bundles offering it now.

    Edit: Well duh, at the bottom of the first MBA available on the webpage I referenced, B&H is offering *free* Parallels 9 *and* *free* Lojack for Laptops.
