    Assuming Panther comes out this month, will I get a OS upgrade from Apple on a new system bought within 30 days?

    Does Apple have an official policy?

    I have been contemplating a 15" PB. But I want OS X.3. Without having to plunk down $200 CDN for the OS.

    There is really no know policy about who gets free updates. It is the kind of thing that Apple likes to keep quiet for obvious reasons. I would think you would likely get it but no garuntee.

    Apple's policy in the past has been that anyone who purchases a new Mac after they announce the release date of the next version of Mac OSX gets it for free. As they have not announced the date yet I would say that you should hold on just a little longer.

    I can't stand it

    I am also waiting to buy a 15"PB w/10.3 but it's driving me crazy! I'll wait till they make an announcement if I can. I can't stop dreaming about it. I'm not responsible if I sleepwalk into an Apple store and grab one this week. Steve made me do it.
