I need to buy Adobe Acrobat - where can I find it cheapest online?
(What I actually need to be able to do is extract text from a PDF file, but all the applications I've found that are able to do this are plug-ins for Adobe Acrobat so I need to buy that too - if anyone knows of a peice of software that extracts text from PDF without needing Acrobat please post here)
You know, I think acrobat is more or less free, it comes bundled for free with so much software. I'm sure there is a freeware version of it. How are you reading the pdf files if you don't have it anyways? I didn't know there was another program that even uses them.
As for buying online, I like to buy from outpost.com may not be the cheapest but you can't beat the free next day air shipping. (probably not to the UK)
You are thinking of acrobat READER. I'm after the utility that you actually make the PDF files with, Adobe sell it on their site for $249 , Amazon have it for $201. It is in a QXL auction for £60, but can't wait til the end of the auction... hmmm will check out Amazon and Yahoo auctions!
Will look at outpost.com - thanks!
Outpost has it for $229 at the following URL...
Beyond.com has it for $234.95 at the following URL...
Buy.com has it for $203.95 at the following URL...
A good place to find deals is at http://www.pricewatch.com
Its largely for computer hardware, but you can also find prices on software. The cheapest I found was $179, but it was out of stock. :(
I always like to go to http://www.mysimon.com before i buy most stuff online.
