    "Not an honest company"

    August 16, 2012  |   By robjaco

    Pros

    Works in current year

    Cons

    You have to pay for upgrade for every update in the Mac OS. If you then upgrade to use the new MAC OS, they will come out with an update to that version a month later. So, if you want the most up to date version and be an early adopter, plan on spending $100 per year to use this software. They suck you in and then they got you.

    Summary

    If you are okay with spending $70 to $120 per year to have the latest Mac OS, go for it. ($20 for Mac OS + $50 to $100 for Parallels depending on how quick you upgrade to the annual Mac OS update.
