  • Accordance Version:Non-user

Posted 12 July 2013 - 10:29 AM

I am a student enrolled in study for my M. Div degree and also an ordained Pastor. I see that Accordace offers a discount for both. Is there a difference in the discount? I have logos on my MacBook but am wanting Accordace after doing research on which one would work better and I feel that logos on my MacBook is glitchy, slow at times and crashes every so often.

You only get one discount, and they are both the same. Strictly you should be full-time either or to get the discount, so pick the one that represents best what you are at present.

Logos is noticeably slower on MacOS than Windows 8, but the system requirements are the same on both OS:s. Recently Logos released version 5.1, which has for example improved notes which now work much faster than in any previous version. Perhaps You should try out the free engine update at http://www.logos.com/installation just to see the recent difference? One feature has now been dropped, the spelling correction in notes in Mac, but other than that there has only been improvements.
Accordance is less tiresome to use as You don't need to follow sales all the time.
I'm an active user of both softwares, and it's hard to say which one is better if I would be to only recommend one.
The regular price for commentaries is usually much lower in Accordance, that might benefit You! Accordance is unique in that they have for example NETS (New English Translation of the Septuagint) and the very practical Comprehensive Crossreferences. Additionally, UBS Handbook, the resource I use the most (the NT) is usually cheaper in Accordance, they only way to get it at a similar price in Logos is to choose "Customize" and then click next when selecting a base-package in the webstore, but Logos base-packages are not all that good. I'm not very familiar with Accordance Collections, I have starter, so I can't make and accurate comparison:

I think the best Accordance base is to buy HALOT (and BDAG) used, and then upgrade to Hebrew Pro. I have never bought a Collection with actual content but am holding on to the working configuration I have so far and am going to buy version 13 Hebrew Pro. /Apr. 6. 2018 - the very last day it was possible to get (if having contacted while the sale lasted) version 12 at 35% off + individual upgrade pricing:
I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries (EDIT March 28. 2018: I now really have quit altogether placing new orders elsewhere) and printed matter nowadays only through the sites biblio and alibris. I also occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them - this is a strategy I'm going to stick to. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-Volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible Commentary.
NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account.
The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018. My current comparison March 20.-21. 2017 of two laptops: https://community.lo...520.aspx#891520

Besides my Macbook referenced below I have a few Windows, among the toughest I have are: 4GB (upgrading to 16 GB) W7 i3 3110 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (since it's W7 Professional and huge battery that actually can be gripped while carrying it open) - on which I have Accordance 10. | Until a Year ago I had: 8GB W10 AMD FX-7600P (since it's AMD:s best laptop CPU - I LOVE AMD) it had the slightly overkill AMD R7 270DX 2GB graphics, it was bought new on Oct. 30. (tomorrow from 
Örebro by train) 2015 marked down a bit as it was a returned item (not on a sale). My desktop has the excellent value for money G2030 CPU Ivy Bridge - currently I'm not using internet in it, it's the one on which I have Accordance 12 Starter installed. /March 28. 2018
For emailing, discussion- and dating- sites I have a very old laptop: Core 2 Extreme CPU, 4 GB RAM, Vista, SSD, old batteries and wanting to get one new battery, out of Bible Study softwares I'm only going to use Accordance (12 Starter) on it. /April 2018 installation of Windows:

This one is waiting for yet another motherboard change and I'm not sure it will get done IF everything continues the same: OS X 10.11 El Capitan on my 2007 Macbook Pro, with motherboard changed when it was 4 years old, disks changed as well: main drive 256 GB SSD, two new batteries. The 6 GB RAM and the two USB 3.0 ports for it (the latter through ExpressCard slot) just arrived this afternoon. /June 17. 2015
