I'm looking into purchasing this later on. I was going to purchase it off of CDW.com because they're price is affordable to me. I had a question about it.

Adobe Creative Suite 3.3 Design Premium - Media
It's listed under "Media Kits & Documentation"

Then there are some listed under "Desktop Publishing Software".

What's the difference. If I purchase Adobe Creative Suite 3.3 Design Premium - Media am I not going to get the "real" programs?

Thanks in advance.

Adobe offers Volume licensing. That is where you only pay for the licenses. But, you do need a copy on media to get started. That is what you are seeing. Adobe CS3.3 is about a $1500 program, unless you are a student. I know....I purchased it. I have over $2100 into Adobe programs. Good stuff!


There are 4 CS suites

Design - Desktop Publishing
Web - Web development
Production - Video production

Master Suite - Everything


Also, CS4 is now the current product.

The cheapest legal place to buy Adobe is Amazon.

Thank you for the info. I am a high school student an I'm trying to find the most affordable place and I found CDW. I don't want to download it illegally so I'm trying to buy the program legally. So the Adobe Creative Suite 3.3 Design Premium - Media has the adobe programs in it? Or do I have to buy that and buy a license for it? I'm a bit confused.

The media only has the programs, and not the licenses. The educational version has the media and the license.

This may be the best place for educational purchase:

If you want to use CDW, call them. They have a good phone sales staff and you will get the right product.

Wow, thanks for the link! That helps a lot.

I feel bad asking all these questions. So you need the licenses in order to use the program? Or could you load the Adobe programs without the licenses?
I'm sorry for all the questions. I'm such a newbie when it comes to these things.
