Powerlook Umax 1100 Flatbed scanner & Mac 10.5.5 Driver's..?

I just updated my "Ancient" 3 n 5 year computer's(Mac). I am looking for a Driver that does not break my wallet like silverfast Ai, even though I am a High end photographer I was wondering if you knew of other software or a way to use what I have without spending, spending, spending. I've NEVER seen a scanner like this one I have that does such a magnificent job.

The owner of my lab, which is in top 5 in country could not believe that one of my comp prints was a scan off my umax 1100 powerlook. Yes I know there are others, but I'm of the belief if it aint broke don't fix it.

Looks like they'll let you buy Silverfast SE for just ... $49. Wow. Expensive price for just a driver.

On the premise you may not need the Silverfast software per se, just the driver, you may be able to, after investigating the legality, try a demo version of a Silverfast product and see if you can keep the driver itself after you get uninstall Silverfast.
