Here’s Why You Should Upgrade to Parallels Desktop Pro Edition

With the arrival of Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac, we also brought something new to the table: Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition. Regarding this new edition, a lot of our customers have asked us the same question: why should I upgrade to Pro? See here the latest features of Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition.

We’re happy to shed a little light! Here are some of the reasons you may want to upgrade to the Pro Edition:

1. You need more.

You already know that Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac exposes native functionality like Cortana, or Quick Look, but you need more. As a power user, you require the most powerful environment possible, integration with popular development and testing tools, and access to 24/7 support. In the Pro Edition, you get all of that and much more:

2. You want to protect yourself against future OS updates.

Let’s face it, with Apple and Microsoft both constantly updating their OSes, it can often feel like you’re always having to upgrade Parallels Desktop to take full advantage of these new OSes or new Macs. But the truth is, development isn’t free, or cheap. It costs a lot of time and money to develop any piece of quality software. For us, revising Parallels Desktop to take advantage of these changes requires tens of thousands of development hours from our engineering team.

Enter the new subscription model offered with Parallels Desktop Pro. By subscribing to the Pro Edition, you don’t ever have to worry about missing out on the latest OS update, new Mac hardware, hotfix, or new feature. Simply put, you’ll always have access to the latest and greatest version of Parallels Desktop (and, with Windows and Mac, the best of both worlds).

3. You want to get upgrades to Parallels Desktop for only $50 per year—forever.

Yes, you read that right. For a limited time, if you upgrade to Parallels Desktop Pro Edition, you can access all of the Pro Edition features for only $50 per year, instead of the standard price, $99 per year. Even better, you get that upgrade price for the life of your subscription—which means that as long as you’re subscribed, you only pay $50 per year to get all fixes and updates, guaranteed. That’s less than a subscription to Netflix or Hulu Plus.

In introducing Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition, our goal was to deliver even more features and power to our users, as well as provide a better way to stay up-to-date with Windows and Mac. What are you waiting for? Upgrade to Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition right now, and like I said, get your yearly subscription for only $50 for as long as you decide you want it.

Happy virtualizing!
