I'm curious if anyone here has ever bought new "factory sealed" software off Ebay?
I want to pick up the new Photoshop release (CS4) and there's plenty of copies claiming to be new and factory sealed in box available on Ebay for rather good prices ($350-400 instead of $600) for the Full "non-extended" version. Meaning it doesn't have the 3D poly mapped object import extensions that the $1000 CS4 Extended handles, which I don't need anyway. I just want the updated standard features for digital drawing/painting and occasional photo manipulations for my websites. I'm curious if anyone here has ever ordered rather pricey software such as Photoshop off Ebay?
While I'm at it, I may as well ask, is anyone here using the new Photoshop CS4 that just came out recently? I'm currently using Photoshop7 from 2000 or so. CS4 does say it's supported under XP-64bit so it's "supposed" to work well on my machine according to Adobe and specifically make use of all the RAM I stuck in this thing. I've heard rumors that pen tablets are trickier (but not impossible) to get setup in CS3 but supposedly this was fixed with CS4...true? After I got the pen tablet I never wanna have to use a brick (mouse) to draw or make image masks again!
