Hey,

Sorry for (possibly) asking a stupid question.
I live in the UK and am looking to buy the new version of Adobe Photoshop CS3, however it costs almost 600 here in the UK. But next month I am off to a holiday in the U.S, where I can buy the same software for half the price, the question is... would I be able to use the U.S version of the software on the Mac bought in the U.K??

Thanks for answers, and in case one can use the software this way... why aren't we all buying it from the U.S??

X-it

(p.s Sorry if this has been answered in another thread, just point me there if it has... thanks!)

It should work, I can not see why it wouldn't. Its the same software, I am not sure why they would charge double in the UK.

but to answer to first question: yes, any software from any country will work

because professionals who are rich dont care how much it costs, and non-professionals just download pirated versions from internet instead.

You may want to look into declaration at the customs issue ahead of time.

Yes, if you are a fair a just person who (given the fact that large amounts of undeclared purchases pass through customs daily because controls are very loose and customs officials don't seem particularly interested in enforcing the system) wants to declare your items, look into the regulations.

You may get caught, anyway.

i doubt it. customs are not too bothered about this stuff, especially if its out of the packaging. i bought a monitor from another country and carried it by hand in original packaging. never got asked a question! so i really doubt they will question you on a software box.

What about the 95% of professionals who aren't rich? ;-)

As I mentioned elsewhere, the U.K.'s higher prices (said to be on everything) are somewhat overstated.

The VAT — value added tax, or sales tax — is included as a hidden cost in all prices. It's easier to do this in the U.K. than in North America because in the U.K. the tax is uniform. Here, the tax rates are all over the map, so they aren't included in the prices.

Some jurisdictions here won't allow such taxes to be hidden, so if — more like when — they increase, everyone knows it.

A more accurate price comparison could be made after the VAT rate is subtracted from the total.
