Default Wahaaayyy!! QXP 7 out today

Just got an email from a reatailer (PC World) that QXP 7 is out today. Well Well!!! The price is £245 or 292 incl. VAT for the upgrade and £749 or £880 incl.VAT (pheew!!) I've said it before, QXP is too pricey. As I see it, Their main competitor ain't InDesign, but the Creative Suite as a whole.

Compare the prices to Adobe CS2 from the same retailer:

Standard £639.99 or £752 incl. VAT

Prem £795.99 or £934 incl. VAT

So its plain to see that CS, even the Standard version makes better finanancial sense esp when you consider you're getting Photoshop and Illustrator which together cost more than Standard. InDesign becomes the icing on the cake so to speak. Quark have lowered their prices a little but not by a large amount.

Quark Xpress Lite anyone???
