Preps 6 - how much $?
We have version 5. Finding a price for 6 is impossible. Anyone have a clue on this?

I think we paid in the neighborhood of $500 or so to go from 4 to 5 about 4 years ago, so I'd say with inflation between $550 and $750 would be expected.

My guess in $2500 for an upgrade. Or more. No real facts though.

$2500 is what we call around here a "KMU" (Kodak Monetary Unit).

Can you imagine the cost if they supplied the lube?

actually, it was a free upgrade for us. So check with your Kodak rep.  Upgrade did not include upgrading all seats to Pro, that was $1500 a seat more.

Ours was free too but I think that was just because we had bought Preps 5 right about the time Preps 6 came out.

We've had 5 since it was released. It's kinda problematic in a pdf workflow.

I'm still guessing in the $2500 range.

For $2500 I'd rather buy a motorcycle.

Well, a motorcycle won't impose pages. I couldn't live without Preps. Well, I could but it would make prepress more difficult.
