I got back from the Photo Expo in NYC to find my new PS upgrade to CS waiting for me. I just took it out of the box and was about to install it when the following occurred to me.

My main computer is an ancient (in computer years) G4 tower, with a 350 MHz processor. It takes a loooong time to process raw files. I am planning on upgrading the computer to a G5 sometime in the not too distant future. Given all the money I've sunk into digital cameras and computers this year already, whether it will be before or after 1/1/04 will depend on the outcome of a consult with my accountant.

I have read on various forums that PS CS is now limited to installation on a max of two machines, a main computer and a laptop. This works for me, as I don't want it on more than this. So my question is: is it a problem to install it on my current and aging main box and laptop, and then to install it again on my new main box when I upgrade to a G5? I imagine its possible but want to avoid any unnecessary calls to tech support to make this happen smoothly.

I don't know if the 2 machine limit applies only to PCs or if it also includes macs. I am more than willing to abide by the spirit of the agreement and not use it on more than the two machines I need, but want to avoid any hassles on this score when upgrading the computer. I don't want to wait to install CS, but maybe I'd hurry up and get the G5 a bit sooner if it would make a difference here.

Thanks for any input.
