MathCAD 14 Pricing

I'm looking to upgarde to V14 on the basis that it is supposed to be Vista compatible, however it appears they are adding a more complicated licence management system and its getting confusing as the price differentials in Australia are high.

For a V12-V14 single user downloadable upgrade, its 299USD, in Europe is 400USD, and in Australia its technically not available as a download but the CD version is between 540USD and 880USD. Has it always been like this or is this PTC profiteering?

I would like to be able to use it on my lapstop as well as my desk top (I currently do this with V12) but I have been told I need a special transferable licence and buy the maintenance too.

Does anyone use V14 standalone on two machines? or has any experience with transfering the licence?


RE: MathCAD 14 Pricing

If you have someone in the US who can bring it to you personally you can save a lot on shipping and customs duties.
