 Post subject: Full retail or Academic
PostPosted: Tue Aug 26, 2008 3:42 pm 
I have a question about adobe software. What is the difference if any between full retail and academic besides the price. I have a chance to pick up CS 3 extended with Total Training's Adobe Photoshop CS3 Essentials DVD and OnOne Software's Genuine Fractals 5 for 394.95 USD. This is a good deal, but is the software is limited in any way? If it is would I be better off saving for a little longer and buying the retail version.
Thanks for the help.

im like 95% sure that they are exactly the same, adobe supports schools by offering lower prices to colleges, high schools, and students. The lab at my school actually only had to buy 1 copy that was liscenced for like 50 computers, more than we actually had.

No it's not limited in any way! The only thing I'm not sure is if you are allowed to resell it later or not.

I got a copy of CS3 Design Premium for about 250€. There's no CD-Key in the software and I had to send Adobe France my student credentials to get it.

So, save the money!

Software companies are like drug dealers. They get you hooked young and for a low price. Once you leave university, they know that you'll be hooked and will end up paying full price :)

Not that I mind, since I'd rather pay and use good software than get some crap for free.
