updated 09:05 am EST, Tue December 4, 2007

Parallels Desktop Premium

Parallels has released a new Premium Edition of Parallels Desktop 3.0, its popular virtualization software. Introduced with the program is the latest Leopard-compatible build of Desktop, which is now also a free, automatic update for owners of the regular package. The Premium Edition bundles three applications for users' Windows virtual machines: Acronis Disk Director Suite lets users move, merge and recover partitions, while Acronis True Image Home lets users backup all Windows data, including the OS and settings.

Finally, Kaspersky Internet Security guards against spyware, malware and viruses. Parallels Desktop requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and an Intel Mac; the full version of Premium costs $100, but an upgrade to v3.0 is only $50, and a free 15-day trial is available as well. Concurrent with the launch of Premium are special deals on the regular edition of Desktop. For $110 buyers can get two copies of Desktop and a $25 iTunes gift card; $80 will get a single copy, plus a $15 iTunes card.
