    I ordered my G5 in July. Apple Netherlands (and also Belgium and UK I checked) treat their customers differently. If and only IF you ordered the G5 on or after Aug. 16th you'll get the free upgrade!!
    So my 3 week old G5 will not be getting the upgrade because I ordered it before 16 august. I found out while calling the Applestore. I called them back after learning about American G5 owners who will get the upgrade regardless of when it was ordered! (he eventually hang up on me, very unfriendly guy)
    So we not only get less value from Apple products in general (iTMS, Sherlock, iPhoto..) this time I feel screwed. It took them 2 month to deliver my G5 (while drawing interest for the + 3000 euro's I wired them) and I have to pay another 165 euro's to get the OS my 3-week-old machine was built for!

    yeah it's unfair..we also pay more for panther in general..and it's much more if you want the education rebate..much more than in the states
