It's not kosher to start duplicate threads in a forum. Your other, duplicate thread is barely 10 hours old. Please don't do that again.
The first advice is NOT to buy software from eBay vendors.
The LEGITIMATE Adobe Photoshop CS6 is exactly the same binary and the same version, regards of the packaging: full commercial version, upgrade version, student version or educational version. The only difference will be in the license and in the price you pay, but only when you buy legitimate copies directly from Adobe or from an Adobe-authorized reseller like Amazon.com.
The part numbers vary according to the license and price, but only if you buy legitimate copies.
Adobe does not sell different versions of the Photoshop CS6 application, only different packages for different licenses of the program.
Most of the Adobe software stuff sold on eBay is fake, counterfeit or hacked copies.
You may save two or three dollars if you catch an offer from a legitimate reseller, but if the price is deeply discounted, it's a scam.
DO NOT let a "part number" guide you.

Note that "Amazon merchants" in "Amazon Marketplace" are notorious for selling counterfeit copies of Adobe software.
They are not remotely in the same league as Amazon itself, even if the purchase is completed through the Amazon web site.
Sorry for the double post! I should have just editted my other post..
How is it that so many purchasers on Ebay provide very positive feedback for the copy of Photoshop that they got from Ebay? I assume the purchaser has loaded his Photoshop CS6 software and has registered with Adobe successfully.

Do you know that the positive feedback is genuinely from real customers?
Do as you please. You have been given pertinent information; what you do with it is strictly your business.
In case it was misunderstood, my question was rhetorical.
Thank you, station_two... I just got my copy shipped to me the other day. I did end up buying it straight from Amazon.
