I think you're right, g5g5. My refurb was "qualified" on-line yesterday, whereas the day before it didn't work.

Good to hear that you qualified. It's kind of strange that refurbs weren't listed from the start, but better late than never. I just hope this isn't a sign of a major rush out with Leopard and not being organized. I have a feeling that 10.5.1 may be coming sooner rather than later.

I've upgraded my Mini to a 2 Ghz Core 2 Duo, does this qualify? I really hope there's no DRM that doesn't let upgraded macs that have weird configurations of hardware in them upgrade.

Should be no problem, mastershake, as long as your mini was purchased within the qualifying period. The serial number doesn't change with a processor upgrade.

There won't be anything tied to hardware with a new Leopard disk, so I don't foresee that being an issue.

OK

I am a Mac yearling so haven't dealt with an upgrade.

In the Windows world upgrades are a nono, a fresh install of the OS is ALWAYS better.

What is better for OS X - upgrade or fresh install?

If you keep a image of your present disc on a firewire disc, one of which you can boot off, I'd say a fresh install and use the firewire disc as the source to take all your preferences and stuff from afterwards. Otherwise I'd go for a upgrade. I once put Tiger with keeping all preferences new on my Powerbook and it gave no problem whatsoever. I'd probably buy a new Mini soon with Leopard on it and do it like this, or I might have to put Leopard new on this disc.
