News: Adobe CS6 announced, Microsoft pulls Office 2011 update, MacBook Pro speculation, and more!

23 Apr 2012

Adobe has officially announced Creative Suite 6, including pricing for the suite. Pricing for the latest Creative Suite to date come in at the same pricing levels as the previous Creative Suite, with the Master Collection tallying up to US $2599 in the US, with local prices being AU $3949 for the full version of the CS6 Master Collection. If an outright purchase for the Creative Suite isn't an option to you, there's also the subscription-based system, with a one-year membership to Creative Cloud starting at AU $62. The Verge reports that pre-orders have also opened up for the product, with estimated delivery by May 7th. Microsoft has pulled the Office 2011 SP2 update from their AutoUpdate software, but users who still wish to download and install the update can still do so manually from the Microsoft website. The update was pulled over issues with the Outlook database, which affected a small number of users.  

MacRumors has news that Apple may discontinue the 17" MacBook Pro in an attempt to refine their product lines and counter weak sales. This speculation is based on analysis from Ming-Chi Kuo, who says that Apple may remove the 17" MacBook Pro when they introduce the newer Mac portable range later this year.

Intel has officially launched their Ivy Bridge series of processors, and 9 to 5 Mac speculates that these new processors will bring USB 3.0, improved video performance, and additional features to future Macs.
