"Macs pre-loaded with Parallels Desktop and Windows XP are now available from Tech Data!
Wednesday, May 09, 2007
Starting today, our exclusive US distributor Tech Data Corporation will be selling a selection of 13 pre-configured packages that include an Apple Mac Mini, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro or Mac Pro, pre-loaded with Parallels Desktop for Mac, with Windows XP Pro pre-installed in a Parallels virtual machine.
This is true 'one stop shopping', because when you buy one of these packages, you won't need to manually configure a thing; each machine is ready to run Windows XP and OS X side-by-side right out of the box!
Our partners & their customers agree that this is the way to go...take a look at what Garrett Cleversly, President of MacSolutions Plus, had to say about why Tech Data's new Mac+Parallels+Windows packages makes so much sense:
'We've found that each pre-loaded, pre-configured Mac that we sell saves us upwards of 1.5 hours of internal setup time, which means that we can substantially reduce the turn-around time it takes to get our solutions into our customers' hands. Now when a customer places an order, they know that they'll spend less time waiting for a shipment to arrive - and less time configuring it upon its arrival - and more time being productive with their new Mac.'"
