End of the Mac vs PC battle? - Parallels Desktop for Mac creates a bond for Windows and Mac users.
Avanquest, a global creator and third party publisher of PC and Macintosh software have launched Parallels Desktop for Mac - the software that lets you run Windows and Mac applications side by side on a Mac with no reboot required. Quick to install, the software costs £39.99 and is available now from Computer Warehouse by visiting their website.
Parallels Desktop for Mac is the only product that gives Mac users the ability to run Windows, Linux or any other operating system and its applications at the same time as Mac OS X on any Intel-powered Apple Mac without having to reboot.
This new software means that Windows users who’ve always admired the look of the Mac range can now go out and buy one without having to adapt to a whole new operating system. Similarly, Mac owners who have been unable to run the windows applications they need to use for their work or their kids’ homework, can now do so. You can even cut and paste and drag and drop between different Mac and Windows applications.
Sarah Atter, Apple Business Development Manager at Avanquest UK, said: “We believe that Parallels Desktop for Mac is the product that computer users everywhere have been waiting for. Our software bridges the gap that previously kept Mac and Windows from working together effectively. The battle of the Mac vs PC could be over.”
Transferring from your old Windows computer to your new Mac is easy – you simply connect the two machines with a network cable and run the Transporter software that comes with Parallels. Transporter will migrate all of your applications and data into Parallels Desktop.
