Re: Software discounts and recommendations

Serif have just released version 2 of their apps with a 40% discount. They’re offering standalone apps and a Universal Licence for all of their apps. The Universal Licence includes both Windows and Mac installers.

Currently their individual apps are on sale for £35.99 (€25.99, $41.04 approx) or £89.99 (€102.33, $102.62) for the Universal Licence. Please note I only ran the cost from £ to € and $ in a currency converter so actual amount might be different.

They aren’t offering a discount for people coming from version 1 but the time limited 40% sale is as close as we’ll get to one.

As usual for Serif all of the apps are a one off purchase with no subscription fees and free updates until version 3.

I thought they’d been quiet on updates recently for the 1.10.x branch. Usually I got an update notification every month or two. That must be why. A universal license is tempting at that price point. Thanks for the tip.

Ditto. Forgot to check the system requirements first d’oh.

Ah well. It’s a crazy price and I’ve already installed all three on my desktop. Laptop is in the process of upgrading.

The system requirements (10.15+) are otherwise more than reasonable —4 major releases, about 7~8years old hardware.

This was one of the drivers for me to switch to (refurb’d) Mac mini M2 this month, and the money I saved was allocated to some ‘upgrades’, including the Affinity suite.

I’m going back and forth on a series of articles of real world experience of moving from Mojave on a 2012 Mac mini to Ventura on an M2…lots of small changes are adding up to some head-scratching and frustrating workflow changes, but I can’t help thinking it will turn into a bit of a moan…so perhaps that’s my answer.

I’d be interested in reading that. A little less than a year back I moved from a 2013 iMac to a mid tier M1 Max Mac Studio. As I use a 2020 iMac at work I had less of a learning curve to go through.

I have Affinity v1 and v2. But currently still on Mojave on late 2012 iMac. using Serif v.1 only.
Debating on a new iMac (24inch…ugh) or going Mac mini and some 27inch screen, but this latter option seems costly.

Re: Software discounts and recommendations

I upgraded to Affinity v2 without realising the minimum system requirements. I do not recommend Catalina on older MBP hardware. It’s a hot mess.

+1. I found out the hard way, rolled back to Mojave on my 2012 Mac minis and it was bearable (also has the 32-bit layer for old software).
