OS X Tiger gets shipdate and $30 Deal

April 12, 2005

Apparently the official ship date for Apple’s Mac OS X version 10.4 (aka “Tiger”) has been set for April 29th.  I’m torn between being anxious, and cautious…

On the other hand, you can now order the Family 5 Pack for $199, and get a $50 rebate—bringing home a new OS for everyone in the house for $30 a head…

Okay, so I only need three of them, but that’s still a great deal, compared to about $150 a shot for copies of XP Pro…

Here’s a list of the new features in Tiger.

    In the UK, the price for a single user is $168. No Amazon Discount, no special upgrade price for people who purchased macs in the last month.

    Yowch… That sucks!

    So can a UK resident order from US Amazon? 

    I know I’ve ordered from Amazon UK several times, and I’m in the US—I’ve got several British bands I enjoy and it’s faster/easier/cheaper to buy newly released albums from Amazon UK direct than to buy imports from Amazon US.  I’ve also bought a few books from UK authors from Amazon UK.

    With the exchange rate such as it is, it might be a bargain to order from Amazon US, particularly if you can get the rebate.
