Mathematica 7 Vs. 6

  1. Jan 15, 2009 #1
    I use Mathematica for computations and simulations-- and making pretty pictures. So is it worth it to purchase Mathematica 7.0? Or should I stick with 6.0? From what I have seen and heard, Mathematica 7 incorporates a lot of image processing features that are pretty neat. How about computation and simulations? Are there any noticeable differences between 6 and 7?--new features?
    Any input appreciated.

    I dunno how well Mathematica 6 supported multicore processors. From what I hear some computations\simulations can go like 50x faster with the new multicore support.

    Is there any other way to use it?
