I don’t believe in beating around the bush on this…because as a former IT person it bugs the heck out of me.
If you haven’t heard by now, as of the release of CS6, Adobe is changing how you can upgrade to it. If you do not have CS5.0 or CS5.5, you cannot upgrade to 6. Yup…that means it’s only for 1 version back! For many of you, I know you’re not on 5 or 5.5…and that’s going to present a cost saving issue for when you have to upgrade.
So, if you’ve been considering an upgrade…now is the time to do so before the end of 2011. If you upgrade to 5.5 and do Adobe’s maintenance contract, you’ll be covered for the release of CS6, and CS7. (Since they’re now releasing new versions yearly.) Don’t believe me? Check out Adobe’s blog page that talks about it. They’re serious.
I would suggest giving your rep here at PC Mall a call right now and talking about this upgrade. With the special 20% off discount on Adobe upgrades right now through the end of 2011, it’s a good time to get square and upgraded before you’re going to have to pay TWICE that amount to get current.
Food for thought…mmm I’m thinking pie. 🙂
