so.. got a mac mini today .. but it ends up coming with tiger instead of leopard....   

so.. i have to send in $10 to apple for them to send me a copy of leopard to upgrade my machine

second.. i also got mac office 2004 (i already have the student/teacher edition)... but cause.. microsoft is going out of their way to be nice.. similar to the $59 office 2007 ultimate for students... as they too are having a mail in rebate for anyone buying mac office 2004 product.. getting mac office 2008 media edition (the beta looks nice already)... for.. you guessed it $10

i love sending money to companies that should have been providing the software preloaded anyway... at least for the mac mini
