Cue the moaning about a sales post :rolleyes:

Personally its not a bundle I would buy as I've already got a number of the items listed. 1Password seems to be in every single bundle so there should be very few people without it by now!

Oo, this one I might actually use. Actually the only ones I want are Parallels and TechTool Pro (got Civ IV on Steam for $5), but still a good deal.

Ha!

The only thing I'd be interested in is Civilization IV. I'll never used parallels again as I can't deal with the upgrade hassles and costs. I'm quite happy with VirtualBox, which is free.

I don't have it but I've been considering buying it for too long. One of these days I'm actually going to purchase the thing. :D

I see they snuck their own app into the bundle for a share of the proceeds.

Well played MacUpdate, well played.:D

Typical of my luck though. The first bundle anyone has ever offered that is of interest to me and i switched back to Linux (Linux Mint Debian Edition) from Mac OS X a month ago.

Im buying this bundle just for Parallels alone. My wife has it and it works great with windows 7. Plus I want to give password a try...

I've been a VMWare Fusion user for a while now, but I'm tempted by this bundle just for Parallels, which I've heard has better performance and integrates better with Mac OS X.

Hmmm... with Os X Lion around the corner, TechTool Pro only temporarily useful..

TechTool Pro always seems to make it into these bundles month before they release their new version, which is actually compatible with the new operating system being released. If they promised a free update (or at least a fairly cheap one), this bundle would be totally worth it!

I actually posted about this before this thread came up...in my view, probably the best bundle ever. ALL apps are top-notch, and no fillers at all (even though I already have 1Password, I am probably buying it for the other apps).

I've got tech tools 5 from the last bundle which is still the current version.

I also posted about it 2 mins before. ;)

The bundle does have a lot of good apps BUT they are almost the same apps as previous bundles (albeit updated).

Are these full versions? I mean if I get this and an upgrade to a particular software appears in 6 months for a small fee to previous owners, can I get the upgrade price?

I already use VMware so I don't need parallels. But I'd like to get techtool and civilization. I'd try the dvd ripper tool too. I use mac the ripper but I'm looking for something that can do PAL disks of other regions so I'd give it a chance.

Parallels 6 is a good deal all by itself.

and 1Password is a must-have for me.
I would recommend this bundle just for those apps.

Civ 4 is apparently better than 5 (which for many felt it was a downgrade though the gfx were improved).

Glanced through the programs and didn't feel the need to purchase the whole bunch. Checked out Divvy, though, and it is an excellent program for fast & efficient window management. Exactly what I had been looking for.

Programs like Quicksilver (!) and Divvy make daily computer usage so much faster. Apple should make them (or similar software) part of OSX.

Hands Off! and Parallels alone are worth it already.

The only interesting thing there is 1password. I bought Civ IV and all the expansions for I think $10 on Steam a couple of months ago.

None of it is useful to me, particularly the DVD apps, considering I have a Macbook Air.

I also can't run Parallels very well with 2GB ram, I use Bootcamp anyway.

This looks like a great bundle. Obviously, Parallels is worth the price alone.

I already have Divvy -- bought it in the Mac App Store. It's a WONDERFUL utility that should be standard in OS X. Highly recommend it, one of the best apps on my mac.

Is that TechTool Pro 5 in the bundle? Isn't 6 out?

Apparently TechTool Pro 6 is out already! http://www.micromat.com/. The upgrade from 5 is "Upgrade - $39.99".

Hmm.... 5 does not work with the new MacBook Pros either.
