{Worldwide?} Turbo Professional products for just $249
« on: December 07, 2006, 11:33:10 AM »
Borland USA's online shop has an offer wherein you can purchase a Turbo Professional product for just $249, instead of the usual $399. The offer seems to be valid only till 31 December 2006.

Basically, $249 is the upgrade price from an Explorer to a Professional edition, but since the Explorer editions are free to begin with, anyone can install one of those and immediately "upgrade" to the Professional edition.  8)

If the above link doesn't work, just go to http://www.borland.c...cts/turbo/index.html and click on the "Buy Now Online" button.

It's a shame, though, that this offer seems not to be available in other countries. I am thinking of buying Turbo Delphi Professional for Win32, and could have used this discount. Well, at least I don't have to buy the full BDS 2006. :P

I'm a big fan of the new Borland Turbo line; if you are thinking of doing MS Windows GUI development, you should absolutely give the free versions a try and see if it's something you like.

I find few that the Rapid Application Development stuff in Borland's tools is a great way to brainstorm.

If you decide to really use the tools - you will probably want to upgrade to the pro version, because only the pro version let's you install 3rd party components, which to me is the nicest aspect of delphi/c++ builder.

ps. I wonder if even people who don't reall consider themselves coders might consider using the free version just as a graphic user interface sketch system, without ever writing any back-end code.  Be a nice way to design a mock up interface as a way of explaining what you want to a coder..

It now look like this offer is gradually being made available in other countries too. Accordingly, I have changed the title of this thread. :)

If this offer is available in my country, I will be buying Turbo Delphi before long!  :-*
