you can download alibre express for free, i think it lets you use the full version for something like 30 days.  i played with it for about 10 minutes.  its similar, but, i didnt take the time to learn it really
use the google.  it's your friend.

How long do you think limited time is? 100 is a steal.

EDIT: I dont think FEA comes with it. That is only with the "design expert" version. The "design standard" is on sale for 100. Con someone confrim? The site is not very specific.
