Ditch the disk

Many computers nowadays no longer come with an optical disk drive. That's why nearly all ChessBase products are also available as a digital download. Other than nostalgia, there's little reason to own a physical DVD of any of your favourite ChessBase tools or content these days. Ditching the disk means you don't have to worry about your three-year-old's fingerprints, keeping track of packaging, or finding all your old DVDs when you upgrade your PC. Everything is available in your Shop account.
