Default 7.1.1 to 7.3 opinions

Hi All,

Looking for any opinions on the upgrade. I am getting ready to start a project and would like to get peoples impression on the upgrade. I assume the 7.3 upgrade has had the major gothchas revealed at this point.

Is it worth the effort?

I am running on an iMac and have been running without issue...really without a hiccup. I am interested in some of the 7.3 new features but I don't want to be side-tracked with upgrade issues.

Any comments appreciated. As well as any pitfalls to consider.

iMac 2.0 dual core
7.1.1 PT 002R

thanks much,

Well, what can I say? I love the new features in 7.3 and for me it works as good as anything else out there. I'd try it...

My PPC version of 7.3.1cs2 works fine. The problem seems to be with the Intel Macs...

Someone told me they thought one problem may be the resources being used for the dynamic transport.

If I had an Intel Mac, I would stay with 7.1.1 for the near term.

Absolutely worth the effort and money (not much money). Be sure to do all the seperate updaters for all plug-ins, bundles etc.
