    Well, so much for the nay-sayers who claimed it wouldn't happen in October.

    Education discount is lame now. I remember when it was 79 dollars, now it's 116. Only 13 off the actual price...

    Education discount is now only $116.

    I kinda understood the price hike for iWork (extra program and all), but this is stupid.

    Hurrah!!! :)

    So now the debate is whether to pre-order Online, or queue to buy it from a store - which one will get me Leopard sooner??!!

    Educational Pricing(?!)

    The EDU discount is currently listed at $116 (compared to $129); I seem to remember it being much better for previous upgrades ($79?)... wow, that will really change adoption rates for students...

    Edit: just checked, the EDU price for Tiger was $69 according to this review.

    Well they took the opportunity to increase their education pricing of the O/S all the way up to $116 from $69. That's ridiculous. :mad:

    I was ready to shotgun purchase it at $69, but now to find it's unexpectedly higher (and more than that magic $100 threshold) it's going to be a lot harder for me to justify purchasing it.

    up-to-date

    Any word on whether they'll be doing the usual "up to date" scheme for Macs bought from today till they start shipping preloaded?
