    I bought windows copies After Effects 6.5, Premire Pro 1.5 and Photoshop CS on ebay for a total of about $300. Well now I have a MBP and want to do some heavy effects work and editing on it, but I don't think I'll ever get the kind of deal I got for the copies I already have for OSX.

    What would your suggestion be?

    Install Bootcamp or Parallels on your MBP, then instal Windows XP to run the programs.

    I have boot camp installed so that's a really good option, but i would like to work in OSX. How does parallels do with AE? Will it crawl along?

    Your couple days late, they gave away "Crossover for mac" for free on the 28th.

    here's a link to the website, it may work http://www.codeweavers.com/

    Call Adobe and ask if you can exchange for OS X versions. They may require you to purchase the CS4 upgrade though.
