Do you consider IDEA worth the $499 price?

The thing is I know it's really good. I tried 4.something a while ago and liked it quite a lot. But when it comes to buying tools for us developers, my company is... well, cheap.

For my use, outside the company, I find the price a bit expensive. Maybe the alternatives are not as good. Sure, but is that price worth the difference?
