Thread: Help for a Mac owning newbie?
12-14-2003, 08:46 PM #1XyphusGuestHelp for a Mac owning newbie?
Greetings to all... I just purchased a used (3 months old) iBook G3 900MHz, and got a really great deal on it. (I traded a desktop PC + $100 in cash) and received the iBook, all the software, manuals, cables, carrying case, etc. One of my co-workers who just moved into a new apartment, was short on cash, and needed a desktop PC in order to take work home offered me a deal to trade the laptop if I were to build her a new desktop PC. How could I refuse such a good deal. (I build PCs for a hobby, and had plenty of parts on hand.)
Anyway, to my question... Included in all of the manuals and software that came with the iBook are some green "Software Coupons", and I have no clue as to what they are used for. Printed on them, hey say that to get Mac OS updates and other special offers from Apple, I will need the coupons as proof of purchase on the OS Software that came with the iBook.
Now, what exactly are they for, and how do I use them? Is this something that is offered at Apple's web site, or perhaps at an Apple store?
I'm really at a loss, since this is my first "real" Mac. (I do have an old Performa 630CD in the basement that I purchased from another co-worker about 3 years ago for $50, but truthfully, I never really hooked it up or used it... it's still sitting in the basement, fully functional, but unused... I've always been a "PC" person, and bought the other Mac thinking I would tinker with it... I haven't used Macs in any real capacity since OS 7.2.5, on one of my earlier jobs in a Printing Company...)
If anyone can offer me a little insight, any helpful info is GREATLY appreciated.

Ive just got a bunch of these coupons with panther and some came with my iMac. I wouldnt worry about them. I have never needed to use them and software is usually updated automatically using software update in system preferances. have never been asked and prob never will. hope this helps.
