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.

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.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

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.
