[BCAB] Sight and Sound JAWS offer

From what I could see, it is the price for a new copy of jaws home addition. So you would presumably get a new serial number. As opposed to an upgrade. I mean the upgrade price from 16 to 18, which would be my case, still showed up as about 300 quid.

As I am still going to be using Windows 7 for a while yet, I have software that won't work on 10, I think I will wait. Maybe jump on 19 next summer.


Cheers
