    already bought mine early this morning.

    A good deal.

    I particularly like in the bundle:

    TechTool Pro 5 (just released, this has more features compared to techtool deluxe bundled with applecare)

    MoneyWell (been on the lookout for a good finance app. I was planing to buy this when its iphone version comes as announced on their website months ago. This bundle tells me I don't have to wait.)

    Circus Ponies NoteBook (powerful organizing tool)

    Parallels Desktop (not that I want to install windows. but hey, might as well try.)

    When i checked the website, around 4,000+ bundles were already sold... After about an hour or 2, the number pegged at 6,000 already... I bought immediately to get the locked items also (only for the first 15,000 bundles)..

    It's now 11,851 bundles sold, as of May 29, Fri, 3:55pm...

    This bundle is selling very fast!

    Great.
    Thanks for the heads up.
    Purchased 2.
    Saved a lot!.

    Just a Q. I'm downloading each, will MacRumors send by mail a copy as well? or this is just for DL? no hardcopy?

    Cheers.

    As with their previous promos, this one won't come with physical discs. I ordered my set. There is one download for nine mini-apps, two separate ones for Parallels and TechTool Pro, and another two for the bonus titles. Initially, MacUpdate made a mistake with the link for TTPro - it was for the update only and not the whole app - I complained by email and they have since corrected their mistake.

    Great sale. Kinda tempted to get it. Although I'm not too fond of Tech Tool Deluxe since the version that came with my AppleCare fried my MacBook's HD when I ran a surface scan; it found errors and hanged on one (with constant clicking noises) leading to an HD crash. Had to have it replaced through AppleCare. Good thing I had a backup. Maybe it was just coincidence or maybe it was really time for my HD to crash but I would not recommend using TTP to anyone due to the hassle it caused me.

    I have a problem with Tech Tool Pro. Whenever I click Tech Tool on the Menu Bar to open its preferences, it won't let me. Its just Grayed out. I wonder why. I purchased this along with the bundle.


    *** Nevermind, saw the answer to my own question... hehehe
