Recently I decided to get a new MacBook Air. This was a good decision! As I wanted to be able to run several operating systems on my new MBA, in particular Windows and the Linux distribution Ubuntu, I looked into different possibilities and luckily there are several good options out there. I decided to go for Parallels Desktop 8 and after playing around with the software during the 14 days free trial I needed a license! The retail price is $79.99 but luckily for us academics it’s possible to get a 50% academic discount from Creation Engine, bringing the price down to $39.99. More info is available at http://www.creationengine.com
You need to prove that you really are entitled to receive the academic discount. After placing my order and sending in the required academic prove it only took a few hours before a shiny new activation key arrived in my inbox.
