    As a student, I can save $500 on Apple's Logic Pro with a student discount. However, Apple boldly displays this message in their online store:

    NOTE: Academic and Not-For-Resale versions are not eligible for future upgrades.

    What exactly does this entail? Am I eligible for downloading bug fixes and the like or am I just stuck with whatever is on the installation CDs/DVDs? I'm assuming that buying future upgrades (7.x to 8.0 or whatever) is out of the question.

    I guess my main question is this: What exactly do they mean by "Future Upgrades"?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Future upgrades means you can't pay the upgrade price when logic 8 or 9 comes out. You would have to either pay the academic price again or buy the full version.

    You can download the updates that come out for the version you buy

    Generally the smaller updates aren't too pricey...7.1 was like 30 bucks or something...

    Also, when is Logic 8 comin out?? Any word on that??
