    Is this stuff anygood without the CD.s and support from the Manufactures, for instance Adobe CS anf Virtual PC and Office and Macodemia and on and on, it sure looks to be the best of best deals there are if this software works properly.

    I know it's not kosher but in a dollar squeeze it sure is appealing.

    Thanks

    Unless they say "CD/serials included", just don't factor the software into your purchase. That way if it works, it's cool, but if it doesn't, it won't hurt.

    People always include lots of pirated software on eBay as a way to try and make their computers sell for more than they're worth. Consider the software worthless when deciding what to bid, because anyone can pirate software for free. Selling it only compounds the offense. I've seen people sell their iPods with music still on them, too.

    :D :D :D

    Yeah, don't pay anything extra for the software unless you get install disks and serials--original ones, not burned onto CD-R. Without those you have pirated software even if the seller once had the disks/serials. It's a liability.
