Yes, you read that right! From April 7th until April 21st, it's like buying a full copy of LightWave 3D and getting a powerful HP P4 Workstation for FREE!!!

Need an extra seat? Now, all you need is the chair.

To take advantage of this great offer, purchase your new HP workstation and call NewTek at 1-800-862-7837.

To order your hp workstation, visit www.hp.com/go/NAB or call 1-800-888-9909.

FINE PRINT* Includes free upgrade to LightWave 8. All prices listed in U.S. dollars. Offer only available in the U.S.


I wonder if that's a screw up, with regards to mentioning LW 8, or if it was intentional (w/Maya 5 and XSI 3.5 being announced, and a Max announcement soon to follow).

I don't see the reference to 8. Is this what you see?

On Newtek's site.

Wooo HOOOOOOO!!!! I like the sound of that! I wonder if I upgraded to 7.5 now if the move to 8 would be free?

Im worried. Excessive price cuts often mean a software is dying. I've seen it before. Here the licences are almost given away considering that the computer takes up most of the price.

This isn't a permanent price cut, Newtek usually has a special sales price for Lightwave at big conventions like NAB and Siggraph, that way they can attract more impulse buys.

Karl, this is not a high end workstation. You've been able to get LW for less than a grand for a couple of years now if you keep your eyes open, I got it for $900 a couple of years ago.

valid through 4/21/2003

Ahh, I just bought a xw6000 XEON box from HP. But I bought LW 7.5 for my Apple a while back.
