After talking to one friend who uses Photoshop and Dreamweaver as well, she said "Well, don't you know that Adobe lets you install a copy of PS/DW on a desktop AND a laptop with a single user license?"
WHAT? REALLY? Can I just say that this is the reason I held off on buying a laptop in the first place? Seriously, buying a second copy of Photoshop alone would have cost me more than the laptop itself, so I never even considered it.
Then I read Adobe's EULA, and sure enough, she was right! I talked to the hubby, and the decision was easy (after looking at our budget, that is).
So I thought I'd share this knowledge about Adobe EULA, just in case you are in the dark about it like I was.

One thing you'll find if you haven't already is that Vista makes sure all your pictures and stuff show out of the folders so you know what you got...which is a bit nicer than XP!

Just a heads up: If you need to reinstall that software on a computer (say you have to blow the computer away and start again), you'll have to call Adobe for help to getting it registered. They block you after 2 registrations. It's a pain, but they will do it for you.

LOL, Angela! It's a HP dv4-1427 in "Moonlight White". 4 GB RAM, 2.2 GHz Dual Core Processor, 320 GB Hard Drive. Vista Home Premium, 64 bit. And Angela, it's got a webcam!
With Back to School deals going on, it wasn't a bad price for a laptop that's actually more powerful and memory-loaded than my almost 4 year old desktop. It took a chunk out of my savings for a Mac and probably pushed that off farther in the future, but it'll be worth it.

Oh Becca I wish you would've mentioned that cuz I knew that (and I'm not normally good at being helpful)
Congrats on the new laptop!!
Shelbi, it's OK. It was one of those "oh duh!" moments when I found out. You'd think after being around SG for this long that I would have learned that somewhere along the way. It's embarrassing now to think about how many conversations DH and I had about the subject, and I always said "It's not just that laptop cost we need to consider, we have to buy Photoshop again."
