Hi, I already have Coreldraw 11 and i am using a Roland PNC-960, but just feel I would rather keep this for design and cut through another package, just don't yet know which one though! so just seeing if anything is on offer here. Ta. Gaz

Anyone have any £reasonably priced" 2nd hand cutting software for sale, must be genuine with manuals etc. I use a P.C. running WinXP Pro, AthlonXP2700 with 3 GB ram.

Hey Phill, why don't you charge £50, then you can buy a pint up at the "Deer Park" and if you "SIGN" it :-? You could probably scam another £20, enough for a sausage roll!. Gaz

Hi Dazzel, if you need to contact Roland, I would recommend speaking to Ian Griffiths, a very nice bloke to deal with and extremely helpful too. He is on 01792 515025, this is the Roland Tech support number. Please be aware though that Roland charge £50 p/h for labour. Cheers, Gaz
