The Prop shop offers a download only version, but I don't know if it will let you add it to your cart without a version of Record registered. As already stated, there are lees expensive options for the boxed version.
Boxes are however preferred as they look nice on the shelf, and are more attractive to sell to someone should you wish to in the future, and well it's nicer than the bog standard 3.0 one anyways
