Apple Adds InDesign Promotional Offer For PowerMac Purchases, Quark Should Pay Attention

Apple has announced a new promotional offer on its Hot Deals page for PowerMac buyers. The company is offering a free copy of InDesign 2.0 with the purchase of any PowerMac G4 system, except for refurbished and other used PowerMacs. InDesign is Adobeis publishing suite that runs natively in Mac OS X. Apple announced earlier today that starting in 2003, new Apple hardware would no longer boot into Classic Mac OS, making InDesign a more attractive product to designers and publishers interested in moving to Mac OS X.

Buy a Power Mac G4 between September 10 and December 31, 2002, and Adobe InDesign 2.0 is yours for the asking. For creative professionals who want an integrated suite of layout and publishing tools that runs on Mac OS X v10.2 Jaguar -- and like the concept of saving up to $699 -- itis the ultimate design solution.

You can find more information on the promotional offer at Appleis Hot Deals page. Look for the offer titled "Design Freely." Also note that Apple has redesigned its Hot Deals page.
