NCBI has announced a CDrom based genbank distribution for cheap.. $50-$60
 they have a package that is called entrez that contains the mac and pc 
search software for that price.  

Ask for a mailing from NCBI (202) 738-3238 (the fax number for orders 
is 202 512-2233)

Or contact Dennis Benson via Email (benson at

NCBI also offers a retrieve service via email that is more up to date than
a cdrom could ever be.  It's a little clunky now, but improving.  For help,
Email retrieve at with the word <help> in the body of the message.

good luck,
