I am looking at purchasing parallels for my machine. 


Can someone glance their eyes over this to see if I am reading this correctly? 




- A new Standard Edition license costs 79.99 USD one off cost.
- An upgrade license for Pro costs 49.99USD/year


- Purchasing a Pro license from day 1 means it'll cost 99.99USD/year.


So by this reasoning, would it not be more economical long term to purchase the standard edition, then pay for the upgrade immediately - more costly year 1, but would pay itself off year 2 (assuming Pro upgrade license continued at 49.99USD in year two)?


What am I missing?

Seems to match what I was paying…
I had an old legacy license and upgraded to the Pro subscription for around $100NZD/yr.
