Could a mini update be far behind? Will new mini owners be given a discount on Tiger?

Do new Mac owners typically get a discount when a new OS is release relatively soon after their hardware purchase??

Yes they do but they don't really go back that far. I have a feeling Iím going to have to shell out another $100 for Tiger. Some proof of purchase coupons were in my box so I have my fingers crossed for some sort of deal. Did you have any coupons in yours?

Well, what do ya know, I DO have those. (sheet of paper with 4 "coupons" on it)

Now I need to go check the other minis'...............

...........interesting...MY mini came with iLife '05 on the standard media (no separate media) and has coupons that say OS X and iLife '05. My kids' two minis have separate iLife '05 media and ONLY iLife '05 coupons.

"Well, what do ya know, I DO have those. (sheet of paper with 4 "coupons" on it)" Very Happy

The bigger question is will they do anything for us? Wink I'm looking so forward to Tiger with Spotlight and Safari RSS and this http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000807035571/ ...so cool!

I have my doubts about Tiger coming out in early April. My bet is Tiger will launch during WWDC2005. I will not complain if it does come in April. Man ThinkSecret is running on thin ice to come out with this news.

That video is amazing but with the 32MB video in the mini it may not look that great.

So has anyone heard anything definitive about whether the Mini (or the ATI 9200 in it, actually) will support the Core Image portion of Tiger?

It's not a make-or-break kind of issue... I'm just curious because it's been talked about, but I've never heard a real answer. It seems like people don't even agree how much of a change Core Image will be for an average desktop....

The 9200 will not support core image. Like you I've heard and read so many things. I just think it will be scaled back and you won't get the full features.

That just seems like fluff to me. Hardly useful. If core image is just eye candy, I can definitely live without it...

Eye candy and a beautiful UI are a big reason why people are switching to the Mac. It might be fluff but it's still cool and sometimes bigger things come from these small little applications.

A mini update aready...

It seems like 50% of the people out there are still waiting to get theirs! If Apple does update the mini they better put the video card at the top of the list.
