Re: You can load CS5 on as many of your computers as you want...

I have also loaded it when I replaced one of my laptops, talk about big brother!

Do they give you a refund if you have paid for the upgrade but refuse to pay "full price"

I am not a pro only an amatuer and I probably use only 1 millionth of what the software is capable of so CS5 is overkill for my needs anyway - might be easier to get elements

I suggest you contact Adobe so you understand what they are doing. Adobe is only concerned with loss of revenue because of software thieves and not with hurting honest users.

I've had Photoshop installed on as many as five different machines at one time but with only two of them activated at any given time. If you go to Help -> About you will see an "Activate" "DeActivate" toggle that is quick and easy to use. Whenever I need to take my laptop to the field it takes only a minute to deactivate a desktop installation and activate the laptop installation.

I had a machine crash a couple of years ago and that, of course, messed up my 2 activations. A simple call to Adobe Support explaining what happened and my activations were promptly returned back to my available two.
