    I presume everyone is aware that parallels is bundled in the promo. But, I have been looking at some reviews and it seems that there are a few issues concerning the bundled parallels and non-US users. It seems as if parallels is a US-English copy and doesn't work for people outside the US. I may be completely wrong here, but what i want to know is whether I, as a UK user, will be able to use parallels normally.

    One more thing: all the items bundled are full versions, so does that mean i am able to freely update the applications when new updates are released?

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Not necessarily. Software update policies vary from developer to developer. A lot of times you get the minor updates free (for example, 3.0 to 3.1) but will have to pay for the major updates (like 3.0 to 4.0). Buying the full version as part of a package almost certainly ties you into whatever policy that developer has in place- you won't be treated differently because you bought it in a bundle.
