Best way to buy Lightwave?

OK, I own the educational version of Lightwave 5.5 and would like to know the best place to buy the commercial upgrade to 7.5. Should I just go through the Newtek site or is there a cheaper way that I may not be aware of? Also, upgrade are $495. Does this apply to educational versions as well?

I ordered my regular upgrade from Dynamic Realities . Everyone else was selling it for $395 and they had it for $295 on a special sale. I don't know if they can handle the educational upgrades or not.

I've dealt with Safe Harbor in the past as well. I think their pricing is pretty much inline with what is in the Newtek Store

Basically, the Newtek site isn't the most money saving route, as I'm sure they have contracts and agreements with their retailers and distributors that they would not offer a lower price than them.

Brian,

You can also order the upgrade from us, and I can give you a discount on your purchase of the upgrade.

last Time I checked with NewTek the Upgrade is $395.00
From Academic to Commercial 7.5

$395 is right. the upgrade from educational to commercial carries with the software upgrade to the latest version.
