TechRadar has teamed up with Parallels to offer a stunning combination of an Apple 2 iPad 16GB with WiFi as well as a copy of Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac.

Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac is the fastest, smartest and most powerful version yet of the number one selling software for running Windows and Mac applications side-by-side on a Mac without rebooting. It also works with the complementary Parallels Mobile app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch so you can remotely access Windows applications and programs on your Mac from anywhere.

With more than 80 new and enhanced features, Parallels Desktop 6 delivers excellent advances in productivity, performance and graphics – the areas people care about most.

Parallels Desktop 6 also boosts speed for working with files on USB drives, networks and in shared folders.
