  • I bought the most recent 15-inch MacBook Pro in September. I think it is 10.9.4, but I'm not sure.

    I previously had CS3 for Windows on my old computer. I did not want to purchase the new Adobe Creative Cloud for Mac because I don't use it enough to pay a monthly fee. Instead I purchased VMWare Fusion, which allows me to run both Windows and Mac on my computer.

    I also purchased the Apple One-to-One classes for a year. The Apple technician installed my old Photoshop, InDesign and Acrobat from CS3. I don't use the other programs, so he did not install them. I might still have someone install Illustrator, however. I don't think you would have problems with the Adobe programs, but I would purchase One-to-One so an Apple staff member installs them. I don't know if you can run CorelDraw and Barcode,
