    I have an opportunity to buy EQ 4 for $30.00. I'm too poor and will never be able to buy EQ7 so I was wondering if this would be good enough for now. Any thoughts?

    I've seen EQ5 on ebay for $25. I would at least go for that.

    I wouldn't. The earlier versions are much less user-friendly than the newer ones. I would bid on EQ5 on eBay for the same amount of money until you snag one.

    I have EQ5 and hardly ever use it because it frustrates the snot out of me. That is the reason I haven't asked DH for EQ6 or 7. I hope the newer ones are more user friendly. Trying to get it to do what I want is like pulling teeth. I always seem to go back to using the copy machine and graph paper with colored pencil. I would just save your money for EQ7.

    I just purchased EQ7 for 149.00 with free shipping this past week. Not a purchase I would of done at 190.00+ shipping that i've seen them for. I was home sick for 4 days and decided I would of spent atleast 75.00 in fuel and I just won't buy any fabric this next couple weeks, So that is how I justified purchasing it. I have never owned EQ products till this one arrives.
    I would say - keep checkin and don't purschase it.. check out the EQ5 on Ebay. You can get some great advice from your quilting friends. I did!
