The Mac Utility Bundle: 5 apps for $59 (including Parallels 8)

Been patiently waiting for a price drop on Parallels 8? Well you’re in luck, because it’s part of the latest Mac bundle to hit the web this Thanksgiving season. With the Mac Utility Bundle, you get 5 apps for $59 – which is 75% off the total retail price. They include: Parallels 8, Snagit, MacOptimizer, Rubbernet and VirusBarrier. Normally Parallels 8 sells for $80 and it’s arguably the best utility for running Windows right from within Mac OS. Snagit’s another app I use heavily for capturing screenshots for TMA and other projects (it can also do video capturing), and this alone retails for $50. You have 7 days to take advantage of this great Mac Utility bundle, so head over to the Stacksocial page for the complete details.

And if you missed it earlier, the ProductivityMac bundle (9 apps for $29) is still on.
