So would it be essential to upgrade to CS3 in my department? I will be getting a new mac pro, our other three macs are g5's running CS2. I know about the intel chip and what not, and I would be purchasing 4 upgrades(maybe only 2) and one full version. Trying to keep all of our software the same so if needed we can swap projects between our computers. Any thoughts...? i would like to get it, but you know....$$$ is always a thing. worth the price?
