I'm not a big fan of Amazon but $50 is $50. Glad I did't pre-order from anyone else yet.

i haven't got anything against amazon. They have a great selection, and at times some great deals. Plus they're very close w/apple because cupertino licenses the one-click ordering technology.

only $69 with educational discount. i wish the $50 was on top that discount... it would take it to the $19 i should pay for an upgrade.

Amazon, surprisingly, has some decent deals now and then. I bought a cell phone from them and I got a $200 phone for free. Can't beat free.

However, their orders tend to take longer to process and arrive.

Anyway you cut it, $50 off is good news for those of us who were disappointed by Apple's pricing. Also, it means Apple is becoming more mainstream.

What I find most interesting about this offer is that Amazon can do it and still turn a profit. This means that Apple is giving their dealers a significant margin. I can't understand why Apple would do that: leaving the dealers to drastically cut prices, making them seem like the good guys and Apple being the jerk. Not only that, but buying the software from Amazon instead of Apple (as many will do at this price) only sends roughly $65 to Apple instead of $130. Weird.

Or maybe Amazon is selling it at a loss to get more customers.

That's a great edu discount you guys get in the states. In Australia (AUD) Jag is $229, student price is $183, which isn't much of a discount.

Quark

WAHOOO! $50 bucks, is $50 bucks.

For me it's even more, because I can save on the taxes too, going through Amazon AND Amazon is offering FREE SHIPPING on anything over $49.

Me likes!!! :D

I was going to buy Jaguar anyway, but now it seems a little sweeter... hmmmm.

Take Care,

Some one over there on the MacNN forum also said that they've yet to receive previous software rebates from Amazon. For some reason, I'm already skeptical over this rebate anyway.

As an independent software vendor ("somewhat" smaller than Amazon) I can assure you that this is not the case. Either Amazon has a very bold volume pricing deal with Apple, or they are, as you say, selling at a loss.

Well then, maybe this is getting closer to an upgrade price...granted, we do get some extra apps I will probabaly never use...but anyways, I just might buy it from Amazon.
I dont think Amazon would sell at a loss, but a very tiny profit. But since they know 99% of the MacosX using population in extremely pissed at apple for charging $130 for an upgrade they will probably sell tons.

By the way, does "amazon sponsor link" mean that Amazon paid MacRumors to display this news?

They have quite a few rebates, its pretty cool. Photoshop 7 Upgrade for Mac also gets $50 off - they have to be selling this for a loss - its hard to believe that they would get a discount from the software manufacterers - Adobe, Apple, Microsoft....

And all the rebates are handles through a third party www.rebatestatus.com

They must be getting a kick back from someone. I work at a company that is an Authorized Apple VAR in the states and our dealer cost on Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar is $117.29 with an S.R.P. from Apple at $129.00.

Macconnection has Jag for 119$ or so:

MacMall also has it for this price. I think 10.2 will drop more.:)

barren
Jul 28, 2002, 09:14 AM
Also pleasenote that the rebate only starts on July 29, so don't buy till tomorrow. Also have a $40 rebate on Photoshop elements 2, which brings it to $50 AR.

Amazon also pricematches now so if they match that $119 price and you use a $5 off $35 coupon at Amazon it will be less than edu price.

I just ordered Adobe Photoshop 7.0 from Amazon--a great deal plus free shipping! It is interesting to view Amazon's list of their 25 top-selling computers in their computer store. Though they don't sell Dull or Gateway computers, it does give you an idea how they are faring against Sony, etc.. Currently Apple's laptops are doing well--I assume it is because of the back-to-school rush.

A good sign: my 18 year-old nephew, a confirmed Apple-hater for several years (who once told me that the original iBooks were "garbage"), told me yesterday that his next computer was probably going to be a Mac. The first Apple product that captured his imagination was an iPod that his high school computer teacher had. Cool.

I'm likewise skeptical - I won't buy until I see the coupon linked from the actual Jaguar page, and even then I've had one too many experiences of ordering from Amazon with next-day delivery just to have my order listed as "shipping soon" until 3 days after the product was supposed to be released. Amazon used to be great - order it and stuff would ship within hours. Nowadays it appears that UPS sends around a cart pulled by mules twice a week to pick stuff up. Amazon's developed this quaint notion that an order is shipped once they send the order pickup information in to UPS, even if UPS don't actually take it off their hands for several days.

However, I've never failed to get a rebate through them. They make take forever, but they arrive - I got $30 off Toast when I ordered it in February. It was July before I received the rebate check (which had a "Void after 31st July" notice on it) but I did get it.

I don't know how many other people here are going off to college but i'm going to U of Iowa and they have an agreement with apple where students get a lot of software for a price around the $10 range. So if theres anyone thats going to college or knows someone thats going i thinks it definitely worth checking out. I'm sure apple has this deal with many other universities.

How does this work? I cant find it on the Amazon site - just 10.1 (which also has a discount).

here in the frozen north (85 today in Vancouver) the actual cost of OSX 10.2 is as follows: $195 plus provincial tax at 7.5% and Federal tax at 7%.
Total: $223.27 CAD

Quite expensive for an upgrade. Of course, I have already been offered a pirate copy from a friend for free......

Anyway, how does one actually order this thing from Amazon?
I dont have the rebate coupon.

BTW - 10.1.5 is running perfectly on my Tibook - I dont actually need this upgrade........(ooh, heresy!)

Amazon probably can do this for two reasons.

1) They receive income from Apple for the one-click license, so it isn't a full 50 dollar 'loss' for them.

2) Amazon feels their software and computer distribution sales arm needs a boost- it helps them deal better with at least one of the distributors they have to deal with, that might be increasingly be looking for reasons to drop Amazon as a customer as they become owned by competitors that wish Amazon didn't even exist.

Did Drugstore.com die? I probably have a couple of hundred dollars worth of coupons for them from Amazon.

I checked the amazon.com web site and could not find anything about a $50.00 discount. In fact, I even did a search of the site for software discounts, and discovered that they are discounting OS 10.1 TO $100.00!

The only thing that I could find that resembled a discount was this message, at the bottom of the Jaguar page: "Write the first review of this item. Earn a chance to win a $50 gift certificate. "

Someone please let me know if I am wrong, because I would really like to get 10.2 for $79.00!

After checking amazon, there is definitely a link on the jaguar page for a $50 rebate. One thing of note though: After printing the rebate, I noticed that the item mentioned for rebate is 10.1. My guess is that the coupon in wrong, but we'll see. Regardless, I cancelled my pre-order with Apple and when asked why I simply said "I just bought my first mac less than 2 months ago and Apple wants me to pay full price for the upgrade. Amazon doesn't so I'm buying it from them."

This is definitely a Loss-Leader, or some other special arrangement has been made with Apple.

There just isn't this much margin in a $129 software product. It's just not there.

Jul 29, 2002, 12:25 PM
It does sound like a good deal - I'll certainly think about getting it this way.

I think Apple missed a trick here, though. So many people are pissed that Apple a) is charging 'a lot' for point upgrade on the OS and b) is charging for .Mac sevices that were apparently going to remain free. Now many (including myself) feel disinclined to pay for either.

Wouln't it have made great marketing sense for Apple to have said: if you by Jaguar, you get a year's subscription to .Mac. Or, if you subscribe to .Mac, you also get 'free' OS updates. If they had done this, I bet Apple wouldn't have any trouble selling .Mac accounts!

I have emailed Amazon requesting a clarification on this issue.

You know, this could be another one of those deals where, after a billion people order, they come back and say "Oops, sorry. It was a publishing mistake and we aren't honoring this obvious error. Here's $5 for good will. If you do not cancel your order by calling us, it will be processed in full at the proper price of $124.99" or something like that.

These 'accidents' are becomming awfully common lately.

Yes, but the original can't be reached other than by a direct link. While it's most likely that they've just linked the wrong coupon, for all we know this is an earlier draft of the same rebate campaign, the $50 rebate was intended to let them sell off surplus OS X 10.1 stock, and the appearance of OS X 10.2 in the "unlinked" version of the rebate form was a mistake that was corrected in the final version of the form.

big
Jul 29, 2002, 01:26 PM
If 10.2 is as good as its suppose to be, It would buhove apple to get it out there, which means giving amazing discounts everywhere.

sometimes that's all it is, kind of like when 8.5 came out. Apple new it was bloated and slow, and promptly release all the following version pretty quickly...

awrc
Jul 29, 2002, 01:31 PM
Just to throw some additional gasoline on this particular fire, has anybody given any thought to allocations vs pricing? Ever noticed how products appear as in stock at the place that's charging full price, while the place with the great price has the product back-ordered and expected to arrive in 2-3 weeks?

Someone mentioned that the Apple VAR price for Jaguar is $117 or thereabouts. We can be pretty sure Amazon's paying less. I'm sure we'll also end up seeing lower prices than $129 (although not as low as the Amazon one) from some other really big retailers who get better pricing.

Who is Apple going to make sure gets their full allocation of copies first? The people they make a lot of money from or the people they make less money from? I've pre-ordered software from Amazon months before the release date with overnight shipping, just to find its status as "Backordered" on the release date despite the fact that I can pick up the same title in my local CompUSA and I end up getting my "pre-order" a week after the title showed up in Wal-Mart. Meanwhile the Amazon order is uncancellable because of the fact that with Amazon "Shipping Soon" uses a definition of "Soon" appropriate to geological time scales.

So, once this coupon linking thing is sorted out, just remember that the cheapest place isn't necessarily going to be the first place to get it - I'm still torn between "I want Jaguar by the 25th and will pay full price and Fedex Overnight if necessary" and "I want to pay Apple as little as is legally possible, even if t means waiting for the monthly 'Super Saver Shipping' mule train to roll out of Amazon's warehouse".

Terbor
Jul 29, 2002, 01:37 PM
The big question is why the 10.2 coupon link shows a different coupon than all the other software titles link to. At least two other titles in the "School of Rebates" section link to the coupon with "B00006F7S2 Mac OS X 10.2: Jaguar $50.00". So the coupon with 10.2 on it can be found somewhere other than the direct link that so many sites have posted.

it appears to be a problem with amazon's site.

i also emailed Amazon after I ordered this. it does list on the site that Jaguar IS available for a $50 rebate, but the coupon linked doesnt reflect it. the linked coupon above DOES show Jaguar. damn what is with big businesses now a days. going bankrupt left and right. screwing people over. messing up crap.

Dear Larry,

Thank you for writing to Amazon.com.

Please know that this situation was the result of a combination of
technical and human errors, and that in no way did we intend for this
to happen.

You can now print the correct coupon directly from our web site--just access the following URL:

http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00005ATST.01.RB02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Click each coupon to enlarge; print it using your browser's "Print" option. If several coupon pages are displayed, please make sure you print and fill out all of them.

If you experience any difficulty, please respond to this message and we'll be happy to fax or mail you a copy of the coupon.

Please note that most manufacturers require that you send in the
original UPC barcode, so please keep the item's packaging until the
coupon arrives. Also, if you need a receipt to enclose with the rebate form, you can print an invoice for your order by clicking the "Your Account" link at the top of our web site and then selecting the link to "Print invoices."

If you have any further questions, please visit our Help pages:

I hope that you will continue to consider Amazon.com for your future online shopping needs.

I just installed 10.2 on my iBook using the Archive and Install option, and when it was done I had over 100,000 files (including my old stuff, of course). That was a growth of around 30,000 files for the new System. I found the Previous System folder and decided to move (copy to other partition and delete) it to reduce the burden on my disk utilities when I'm Disk Doctor'ing or defragging the OS X partition. That was successful, although it took 45 minutes to delete all that stuff. My question is whether this was a BAD IDEA? It's my understanding that Archive and Install merely renames your old System Folder to Previous System 1 in the new Previous System Folder, and then creates the new System Folder. This leaves all your previous Prefs and Apps alone, so when you're done you're ready to go, while keeping your old System Folder handy if you need to use it after the install. So, it would seem that subsequently deleting this old 1.2GB of stuff should have no bad affects on you system after you're sure everyting is working OK. Is this correct? Everything seems to be working fine, following a series of of Disk Doctor and Speed Disk runs to clean the partition up, but I keep wondering whether I've screwed something up. Any Unix gurus out there who can reassure me, or send me back to the drawing board?

Probably not as long as it still exists. The caveat lies in what invisible files might have been missed somehow. Sometimes its helpful to take a look at your OS X disk from another OS 9 booted volume, then you can see quite a bit of file structure that is being hidden from you 'for your protection' by OS X.

This leaves all your previous Prefs and Apps alone, so when you're done you're ready to go, while keeping your old System Folder handy if you need to use it after the install.

This is pretty much the situation with OS 9 and before. Thoretically, a regular install of OS X. 2 over OS X should leave all individual user prefs and apps alone anyway, I don't know of the global preferences that may have been set up in Admin or superuser that could be overwritten by such an install. Newer versions of some Apple supplied apps -might- lose some particular idiosyncracies of your old set up you were dependent upon.

I suggest to any one paranoid about the install process that they backup the entire OS X volume to another drive with an app like Carbon Copy Cloner.
Bob LeVitus at http://www.osxfaq.com/dailytips/ has been addressing the concerns you are having as much or more than anyone; recently a OSXFAQ reader even offered an uninstall package that uses the install log for pkg files to make sure all the invisible file detritus can be uninstalled safely.

My problem now is dumping my archive of 10.1.3 so I have room to back up 10.1.5, without losing my present iTunes library which resides on that same disk. But after that I would basically have another bootable volume with a working copy of OS X including printer drivers et al to switch back to (there may be other problems arising with multiple copies of OS X variants residing on the same drive, so I hear)

here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00006F7S2/qid=1028160472/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/104-8879110-8065523)

The rebate was pulled shortly after it was offered. It is my impression that Amazon intends to honor the rebate for those that ordered within that 48 hour or less period before it was pulled.

Thanks for the feedback. I booted into MacOS 9.2.2 when I deleted the old Previous System folder, so I'm pretty sure I grabbed all the invisible stuff. I also have a complete backup of 10.1.5 on a firewire HD, so that's OK. I was just wondering if it's possible anything in the new System might be pointing to anything in the Old System folder, and by deleting it I was fundamentally screwing up my 10.2 install. It doesn't sound like I did. Thanks. I'll leave all alone for awhile before I replace the 10.1.5 firewire backup with the new 10.2 installation.

Okay, I got a G4 about a 1.5 week ago...Can I still qualify for the $200 dollar monitor? If I decided to get a monitor now?
