    Hi guys,

    As the title really.

    Im seriously thinking of buying CS4 Web Premium.

    Iv heard that you can have a single license for home and office as long as not used at the same time. Can you however have a Mac version at office and PC at home?

    Also, can i buy the software from outwith Adobe direct and still have a genuine license key? Im from the UK was thinking of buying from somwehere like this which has design premium for $450 Surely to good to be true? The full Adobe UK price is around £1500 ($2500+)!

    If i but from the US does that still make it valid for upgrades etc in the future or do you have to buy from Adobe UK direct for that?

    Thanks for time in advance.

    I'm not sure about the upgrades question, but when you activate CS4 on a platform, the license key is locked to that platform. Unfortunately, this means that while you can install on more than one computer for the use pattern you mention, they both have to be Windows or Mac installations - not one Windows, one Mac.
