Pros: Fun vector art features. New page designer tools added. Now supports 64-bit and multicore machines.... Cons: Windows only. No a la carte pricing for apps within suite....Bottom Line: Enhancements and new additions to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 turn Corel's vector art app and image editing tool into programs with much greater purpose. Dedicated Corel users will get enough out of X6 to warrant the upgrade....PC Mag: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2402819,00.asp
