Thread: Does early order = Tiger?

I'm wondering if Mac has done this with previous major OS upgrades: If you order a Mac a few days before a new OS release like Tiger, will you get Tiger even though you should technically get Panther?
I'm a soon-to-be switcher who just can't wait any longer to place an order for my Mini, but I also want Tiger. If I order, say, this Monday April 25th (4 days before Tiger is released) and my estimated delivery time is 2-4 weeks, would Tiger be included?

It is a good chance that either the system will be preloaded with Tiger or the media maybe in the box.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

And it's not Mac that makes Tiger, or builds the Macs, but Apple.
brand = Apple
product = Mac

Anyhow, concerning my original post, I decided to order a Mini on April 23rd after I read some Google news accounts of some people already receiving Tiger who had pre-ordered it. This got me pumped, so I thought I'd order a couple of days earlier than planned. Hope it pays off with free Tiger!

I ordered an iMac earlier this month which was dispatched on 8 April - before the Tiger release date was announced. I called the online store while the Mac was in transit and Apple (UK) added Tiger to my order free of charge. Due to be shipped on the 29 April.
