Try some mail order sources, but ALWAYS ask about "competitive
upgrade" prices. These prices are often the same or only slightly
higher than regular "version upgrades." You may not see them
advertised in the catalog, but ASK. They usually have some kind of
deal. I've found good prices at PC Connection, PC Mall, Publisher's
Toolbox (a favorite and they have an outstanding web page!),
MicroWarehouse, and other mail order sources. They have 800 numbers
(call 1-800-555-1212 for directory assistance). Usually the mail
order prices beat the local merchants and most will overnight it for
only $5-$10. For that, I'd hardly drive across town (I live in
Dallas.....a BIG town).

P.S. For competitive upgrades, the product checks during the
installation to see if you have the competing product. If it doesn't
find one, it doesn't install the files.
