Adobe, Apple Offer Deal on OS X Design Collection

$1,000 off software with new Power Mac purchase By Dave Nagel
Adobe and Apple have teamed up to offer a deal on the Adobe Design Collection for Mac OS X. The deal applies to anybody purchasing a new Macintosh from Apple or an authorized reseller between Feb. 25 and Aug. 31. It allows Apple customers to buy the Design Collection for $899, a $1,000 savings off the regular price.

The Adobe Design Collection includes InDesign 2.0, Illustrator 10, Acrobat 5 and, oddly enough, Photoshop 6, which only runs in the Classic environment in OS X. But those who purchase through this deal will receive the opportunity to upgrade to Photoshop 7, which does run natively in OS X, when it becomes available. Details of the upgrade--whether it will be free or paid--were not available immediately. We'll bring you an update in a week or so.

"The Adobe Design Collection for Mac OS X gives Mac customers the unique advantage of one integrated software environment and interface to create, manage and deliver their work to multiple mediums," said Susan Altman Prescott, vice president, Cross-Media Product Group at Adobe, in a prepared statement. "This promotion demonstrates our commitment to Mac users by delivering an affordable design solution that meets their needs."

The Adobe Design Collection is available during this special promotion for an estimated street price of $899 when purchased with a qualified Apple Power Mac G4, Power Mac Server G4 or PowerBook G4 from The Apple Store, at Apple Retail Stores and through Apple Authorized Resellers. The promotion is available in the United States and Canada. For more information, visit
