Hey, so I'm a bit confused. I bought Final Cut Pro off a friend, and I'm sure he told me that it was the Educational Version. So I rang up apple to see what the real deal is with upgrading the education version to the new retail version. He asked me to look at the serial number strip, and it says 'RETAIL', on it - suggesting that its not an Education version after all. So he says that If I buy the Retail upgrade package, that it will be no problem to upgrade the software. Questions: What happens if the apple guy was wrong, and actually the version I've got IS an Education Version - will the software I buy be totally useless without the correct upgrade serial no? If it does work, will I be able to sell on my old software for someone esle to use? Is there any was of typing serial numbers in somewhere to find out if it is Education Version or not? I don't have the software installed on my laptop at the moment, becaue I'm waiting to buy a MacPro. Any advice greatly apreciated, Cheers.
