This is the mother lode, folks: we're starting off the new year by offering a brand-new iMac with 1TB hard drive, 8GB RAM and Magic Trackpad! What's more, this fully-decked all-in-one also comes preloaded with Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac, so you'll be able to run Mountain Lion and Windows 8 (as well as Win7, in case you're not in love with Microsoft's latest) simultaneously.
This week's giveaway comes to you thanks to Parallels, which is promoting its Apple-in-the-Workplace campaign. While PCs have traditionally been the computer of choice in a majority of business environments, Macs and iOS devices are starting to crash Microsoft's party -- and a program like Parallels (and Parallels Mobile) makes it much easier to accomplish everything on one computer. If you want more Apple support in your office, head to the Apple-in-the-Workplace Barometer and take a short survey to see how your company's adoption rate compares with that of others, and you can get info that will help you figure out how to make Mac adoption a reality.
