CS4 sees major student cuts
Major programs from Adobe, Intuit and Parallels have also become a part of special Black Friday software deals. Amazon is selling Adobe's CS4 Design Standard Student Edition for $296, the CS4 Web Premium Student Edition for $350, and the CS4 Design Premium Student Edition for $404. The discounts are extremely high, between 78 and 79 percent lower than list price.
Adobe itself is now selling Photoshop Elements 8 for just $60, $40 lower than normal. The price does require taking advantage of a $20 mail-in rebate, but at least includes free shipping. Parallels has dropped $10 off its Desktop 5.0 virtualization software, whereas VMware is selling Fusion 3.0 for $16 less with the code "dsktp20sale".
Intuit has lastly dropped the price of QuickBooks 2010 to $160, though MacMall is offering it for as little as $150.
