Asked by: Corina S.
There should be no issue running a 2016 mac book pro with this version of pro tools. The student version sold here at B&H is available only to students in U.S. accredited institutions. You may purchase a student version in Argentina nonetheless.

question

Does it Come with Ilock two or three ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Because all software packages are sealed for the consumers' protection, there is no way of knowing which iLok version is included; and AVID does not list this information explicitly. Here is some information you may find useful however. The ilok2 has been discontinued for some time now, but it is highly probable there are still software packages with the old iLok. The iLOk 3 (B&H# PAILOK3) is available for purchase separately on our site, offering smaller yet stronger housing, with the 3 times the amount of storage space.
