Is Creative Cloud the Best Answer For You to Get Adobe Creative Suite Apps?
Another option is the Adobe Creative Cloud. You pay a monthly fee for access to any and all of the applications in Adobe Creative Suite 6. This can be handy if you only need to use a specific product for a short period of time or if you simply don't want to make the upfront investment in the DVD.
Adobe is running a special offer during August 2012 where owners of existing CS products can get a subscription for $29.99/month (40% off). I certainly can't tell you the best decision for your needs, but this special pricing makes the Adobe Creative Cloud a very attractive option.
