Ready for a great deal on a collection of new Mac apps? The MacUpdate Spring 2013 Bundle lets you grab 10 excellent Mac apps valued at $618 for just $49.99. These aren’t nonsensical no-name apps that you’ll never use though, the list of high quality software includes:
- Parallels Desktop 8 – ($79.99) – Run Windows & Linux on the Mac in virtual machines
- DEVONthink Pro – ($79.95) – Knowledge base and & information manager

A free demo of the bundled apps is also available. A few of these apps even include multi-use licenses, making the deal even better. The Mac Internet Security pack will cover up to three Macs, and the 1000 fonts collection supports up to five computers (yes, even Windows machines).
We’re admittedly on the geekier side of things so our staff favorites from the bundle are Parallels for virtualizing other operating systems, iStats for keeping track of various performance indicators, Prizmo for the awesome OCR scanner, and DiskAid for the ability to easily transfer things to and from iOS devices, but all of the apps will be great additions to your Mac.
