Apple Announces Apple Store Tiger Festivities for Friday

Apple Announces Apple Store Tiger Festivities for Friday

by , 8:55 AM EDT, April 28th, 2005

In case you've been under a rock for the last few weeks, Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" will be released Friday, April 29th, 2005. Apple Computer announced Thursday the traditional Apple Store (and VAR) festivities for such a release, beginning tomorrow at 6:00 PM. Tiger goes on sale at that time, and the company will be hosting "Tiger World Premiere" events from 6:00 PM to midnight. These events will include workshops and hands-on demonstrations of Tiger's features, plus giveaways at every store, and a chance to win a PowerBook G4, iPod, and more.

For an Apple Store near you, visit Apple's retail Web site. For an Apple-authorized VAR, check your local Yellow Pages.

Like all of the point updates for Mac OS X, Tiger will be priced at US$129, with a Family Pack of 5-licenses available for $199.

The Server version of Tiger will be priced at $499 for a 10-client version, and $999 for an unlimited-client version.

Apple is offering free upgrades to Tiger (with a shipping and handling fee of $9.95) for customers who purchased a new Mac on or after April 12, 2005. You can find details on that program at Apple's Up-to-Date Web page.

You can also order Tiger from the Apple Store, and Amazon is offering it for $94.88.
