A "Must Have" for Mac Users

on 4/18/2013

Whenever I purchase a Mac for clients, I always purchase VMware Fusion as well and load it for them. It's a great deal at under $50 dollars. It's great so you can run applications that only work on Windows. Why not have the best of both worlds? I have tried Parallels as well, but prefer VMware Fusion instead.

Great product, great brand name and the product does what is advertised to do. I can now run MAC, PC, Linux and several flavors of them all from my MAC mini server. Thanks.
