When Apple announced the universal binary upgrade to Final Cut Pro, they also announced some really good upgrade prices. The catch is you have to do the upgrades and crossgrades via mail. But you better hurry because time is running out, Orders must be postmarked by December 20, 2006, and received by December 29, 2006.
In case you were unaware, to crossgrade from Final Cut Studio 5 to 5.1 you must use Apples crossgrade program. You simply fill out the form and send in your original install discs. Then Apple will send you back the new 5.1 discs. The cost for this is $49, which is really good deal for all the extra feature that you get.
