    Duff-Man says...Parallels does a lot of promo pricing - they always seem to in involved in MacUpdate bundles etc...but I've **never** seen them be part of a legitimate offer as low as $10....you know, you can try contacting Parallels and asking if it's legit and if they will support your purchase....oh yeah

    Best I did was buying through Nova Development, right after I'd bought my MBP. They sold it at around $79, but had 2 different promos I qualified for which brought it down to $39 after rebates. Of course, the rebates took forever, and they managed to lose the documentation I supplied for one of them (fortunately, I kept the email copies, so I was able to forward those on), but $40 back was kinda nice :)

    Look too good to be true, guessing its either Warez, or some kinda cracked version. Which if you are gonna go that route might as well get it "free".

    You could always get a $10 visa gift card thing and buy it

    If you look at the actual ad, it's for a license and not a boxed item. The company seems to have a decent record with BBB.

    If it is only for a license, can I download the trial version and then activate it using the license? Does anyone know if the trial is the full version, but for only a limited time period?

    It looks to be a volume license for 250-999 users, so I presume that price is per user
