	Concerning student versions of Mma: I bought the student
 version for Windows in early 1994. I paid $175 US, and instead
 of using a coprocessor, it emulates one via the sourcecode. 
 However, since that time, the latest student version for Windows
 DOES use the coprocessor, and is probably just as good as the full
 version. It now sells for $109 US, and this is the educational 
 price, and you need to be a student to buy it. If you have the 
 older version, as I do, you can upgrade for $50 US. This leads me
 to a final note: I think what you will get for $109 US is a full
 version of Mma, but probably not a full customer support package,
 such as no free upgrades, etc. Also, more schools are using Mma
 as a classroom tool, so it makes sense to make it affordable to
 a large number of students. And it's a good package! I hope this
 helps somebody.
