Mac users buying an Intel Mac from leading Apple Premium Resellers are being offered a free copy of Parallels Desktop software (worth £40).

Actual terms of the deal vary from dealer to dealer. Mac dealer Gordon Harwood Computers (GHC) is offering the software for free with the purchase of any Mac.

Parallels allows users to run Windows applications on their Intel Mac from within Mac OS. However, Mac users do require a full version of Windows as well as a copy of Parallels (or Boot Camp) in order to explore this feature. Windows software isn't included in this deal.

The promotion expires on 30 June, and is only available to consumer customers, not business customers.
