This may seem a little dumb but I have to admit I've been wondering about this once for a while now. Right, I know that Powerbooks ship with the latest version of Mac OS X (panther) installed but what has be stumped is... Am i getting the full, official version (as sold on the apple wesite in the sweet black box) or one of those stupid repair disks that you so often find on Windows PC's - even though for the amount you paid for the computer you should at least get the official version . I guess I just like to know where my money is going before i fork out for anything, and being a student, thats not something i have a huge amound of . However having recently fallen inlove with the Mac OS X I've desided to go all out and save up for a new Powerbook . Thanks in advance guys, much apreciated! Mark.
