Final Cut Studio Price Shocker
In a surprise move... Apple lowers prices in everyone's favor.
By Richard Harrington | July 23, 2009
Yes we all new it would eventually come... the "new Final Cut Studio" was announced.
We'll let the cheers and moans begin after a few days of testing the final release (just ordered mine 30 minutes ago).
But there are a few surprises.. mainly price!
Here's the great news (especially in this economy)
Final Cut Studio 2 - NEW was $1,299
the new Final Cut Studio - NEW is $999
Here's the best news
Final Cut Studio 2 upgrade - was $499 - $699
the new Final Cut Studio upgrade - is $299
I have confirmed... doesn't matter which version you are upgrading from...
I took it right to Apple and got a straight answer.
That is $299 for ANYONE to upgrade from a full copy of Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Studio (except Student or NFR copies).
More on new features soon... but let me just say:
In the current economic client, it's truly appreciated to see software pricing that respects the long-term customer. This is a no-brainer upgrade... speed and power without pinching your wallet. Thanks Apple... I mean it!
