[Athen] vendor query

Hi, Robert. Does your university have an option to purchase "academic"
priced software for personal machines as opposed to the college licenses
for college-owned machines? That is often an option for both students
and employees and keeps you inside the safe university purchasing

If that isn't an option, I _think_ AcademicSuperstore.com is reputable
but haven't had need to purchase from them in a long time. Academic
pricing there for Adobe Pro 9 starts at $70 and goes up depending on the
licensing you are eligible for.

Hope this helps,

Hello all,

I'm needing to purchase Acrobat Pro for my laptop. Since it isn't a
college machine, I can't install college licensed software on it, even
though I'm using it for college related presentations.

Anyway, my student worker found the program at Baseline Software for
$134. The price at Best Buy and CompUSA is $450.

My question is, has anybody every used Baseline Software? Are they
trust worthy? My niece purchased some software online before, then was
not able to register it and use it because it was already registered in
somebody else's name. She was never able to get her money back or get
the software.

Thanks for any pointers.
