    Question will mac mini users get free upgrade to tiger?
    Does anyone know if apple will let their mac mini users update to tiger for free? I soon to own a mac mini am curious to wonder if I will be able to upgrade for free. Thanks for the help.

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    Depends on when you purchases your Mac mini. I believe you want to get it no more than 5 days of the release. It would be better to get it after the release of tiger.

    I don't beleive that users should be entitled to a free upgrade just because they bought at the wrong time. Examples of buying at the wrong time exsist everywhere, should there be compensation for that?

    i don't think apple have to give current mac mini (or any other apple platforms) owners tiger for free. tiger IS an upgrade. there is nothing wrong w/ panther that's pre-loaded on mac minis now. just my 2c...

    In the past Apple has offered special upgrade programs for people who bought a computer just before a major system release. Eligibility was based on purchase date not model. The cost was minimal, around $20 US for the CD. Whether they will do this for Tiger is up to Apple.

    That would be cool of them to that, as I just got my mac in the middle of Feb, however as coming from the PC I expect noting at a discount. Would be nice to see such a cheap price for an upgrade on that though.

    It does not quite work that way. The license is for 5 systems in the same household.
