Reason 7 upgrade offer end?
 
Hi I am saving up for a balance interface.I has reason 6.5 and sees that you can get a free upgrade to reason 7 if you get balance. when dose this offer end as I am most of the way there. I also would like to update my computer at the same time. At the moment I am running a Toshiba satellite AMD Turion 64x2 Dule core @ 1.6Hz with 2 gig of ram below the minimum spec. For reason.(It runs OK for small home projects).I have been looking at the Toshiba satellite with an i3 @2.7Hz and 8gig of ram for £399.will this be OK for reason 7 for at least the next 2 years?

You should contact support, but it's very likely that the offer won't really end, and that if you buy a Balance after R7 ships, you'll still get an upgrade to R7, like you got an upgrade to R6, then R6.5, as they were successively released.

During the the "grace period", they're effectively giving a free upgrade to R7 so that sales don't stop while people wait for R&.

Of course, after R7 ships, you can't really get a free upgrade for buying R6.5 as it will no longer be for sale, although they would probably honor the offer if you bought the last copy in some retail store somewhere and verified the purchase.

As for computer... the i3 is probably not the best choice if you want high performance with Reason.

I think, the upgrade offer with the free upgrade will end as soon as R7 is released, i.e. on April 30.

Regarding the hardware: I personally think RAM and Ghz would be more than just enough. i3 should be fine, too. Though with i5 or i7 you'd be more on the safe side. But I think here are some peeps around who can give better hardware advice on PCs. Anyone?

NO. someone from Props already responded in a different thread.

Since the day Balance was released, it has always been:

if you buy Balance and own (and have registered) any previous version, you get a free upgrade to the current version - and that would not be changing with Reason 7.

Thanks for that info steve, so it will be worth getting a balance after R7 is released for the upgrade too, good to know :)

Great to be wrong ;-)

Btw might be a good choice to get Balance now, though. At some stores it's quite cheap now, e.g. at Thomann (shipping worldwide) for 289 EUR:
