Or maybe I the smart move would be to hold off and go for a more expensive program, like ChessAssistant or something.
Chessmaster 7000 is a bit better than 5500. I have both, but 5500 is not currently installed on any boxes. I use 7000 a few times two or three times per year.
I use Fritz nearly every day, and found Fritz 7 for $10 almost a year ago. That's the bargain you want because Fritz 7 is leagues better than the newest version of Chessmaster, as well as all the old ones.
