  • Not as good as they say.

    By _Slimbae
    OK soooooo, it took me some time to think about the amount of stars i wanted to put but i think 2 is appropriate. This app is good when its good. However, they dont tell you after you download it the problems you run into. 1 it runs slow some days and yes ive freed up space MULTIPLE times! Also everytime stop using and go back to it i have to ubninstall and reinstall it smh terrible. and when i do that it runs so fast the BOOM crap! also the price is mehhhh cant wait till they fix the bugs.

    There are tasks I cannot do on a MacOS. I have to resort to windows for those tasks. I was skeptical about this at first but Paralells give a streamline experience between my mac and windows. I can now do the tasks i wasn't able to do before! Thank You Paralells!

  • Love it but can't afford it

    By JellyGhost5
    A few years ago, I believe those who used parallel would be crucifying their poor beautiful innocent Mac, now without regard to my previous risk, I nearly killed my very old mac to try to anew. Yeah I freed up my whole harddrive, and everything is now Clouded, but I ran it and love it and it's pretty much great and fast enough, a few pet peeves but whatever.. my two weeks are nearly up. Sad times, because after already paying for Windows, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Disney, Internet, Phone Bills, and that doesn't include GAS!! omg Gas!; food ; electricity, water, gas bill (different gas); property tax, and also grammarly, and I am thinkiing like two different storage terabite subscriptions... I just can't afford another 100.00 a year. I know it might be like 70 something. but once you pay 15 dollars aren't you more or less paying 20...and once you pay 30 dollars aren't you paying 50, and when you pay 50 it's more like 100 dollars and then its too much....espcially when I have LIFE360 and it literally has saved our lives. That is only 50 bucks for gold membership, and I love them. LIKE Can't LIve without them, but sadly parallels is too costly, hence the could have been 5 stars is only 4 and that is me being generous
  • Parrallels - Macbook Pro M1

    By EricJFischerofCinegration
    This new version seems to run smoother and not over work the Macbook Pro with M1.. seems like it is much calmer.. cleaner system.. I have been enjoying it thus far!
