Hey Guys
Question... Software you purchase from apple.. Lets says "Final Cut Studio 2" for example.. So if I were to buy it as a regular customer it would cost A$ 1,698.00 but another family member goes to uni and if they sign up thay would get Final Cut Studio 2 for A$ 1,049.00 thats a saving of $649!!

So my question does the EDU final cut differ to a regular version? Does it have EDU all over it? maybe a splash screen saying EDU? or is it the same version to the bone just heaps cheaper?

Some universities (e.g. RMIT) offer Apple software at an even greater discount, for example, Final Cut Studio 2 costs about $550 at RMIT.

Same version, however cannot be used for commercial purposes, and is generally not eligible for upgrades down the track.

Well technically you can't get someone else to buy it for you to get the discount.

Nope. it is the licence that is different not the software.

I bought the edu version of the studio and its exactly the same as the retail one, no difference what so ever. look at it same way as if you bought a computer with the edu discount , all the same. just cheaper

that most likely is the upgrade not the full version.
