I’m so excited

I discovered that I can just “plug and run” pretty much everything on this macbook. Including my Microsoft trackball mouse and my printer. No software required. Now I just need $500 to buy Illustrator and I won’t need my pc for anything - anyone want to send me $500? Really good karma will come your way if you do ;)

Why is Adobe so danged expensive, it’s a racket I tell ya. Scam artists the lot of ‘em.

    I wonder if Adobe has discounts for people involved with non-profits that you could use to get a better price. They are great products, but such a rip off!

    I was able to get the Adobe Creative Suite in Australia (where it costs twice as much retail as here) for $350. It includes Illustrator, Photoshop and more. So it’s way cheaper if you can find a discount.

    wow, that was a really amazing deal! I’ve never thought of the non profit option, I’ll look into that. Our church would have to buy it of course but I could get them to do that if I gave them the money I bet.

    so in case anyone is interested, yes, you can by adobe products for about 1/4 of the cost if you are a 5013c (in the US anyway, I have no idea how other countries do such things). Illustrator is only about $150 or less depending on where you look and the whole creative suite is around $400. Good to know. I’m not sure our church will go along with that since the program will also be used for my own independent contracting…but we’ll see.

    Cool. Hope you can get it for the cheaper price!
