Apple is offering its customers a substantial discount on the Adobe Design Collection.

The Collection comprises Illustrator 9.0, Photoshop 6.0, InDesign 1.5 and Acrobat 4.0. Any customer purchasing a Power Macintosh G4, G4 Cube or PowerBook before March 31 can buy the Adobe Design Collection for £499 – a saving of £920 when compared to buying all four products separately.

The offer applies to sales from the Apple Store, participating Apple Authorized Resellers, or the Apple Store for Education. The Collection must be bought at the same time as the computer.

Illustrator 9.0 is Adobe's vector-graphics solution, and has improved Web graphics. Photoshop 6.0 is the industry-standard image- and photo-manipulation application, and InDesign 1.5 is Adobe's desktop-publishing program.
