    Question for our smart and experienced MR shoppers here.

    If I buy Tiger from Apple it will cost me $129 plus 8.25% sales tax - shipping is free.

    If I buy it from Amazon, it will cost me $94 total - no shipping or sales tax.

    My only concern is that if I buy it from Amazon I might not be eligible for those free Tiger seminars that Apple emailed me about.

    What do you guys think?

    Amazon.

    If it's that much more pricy from Apple then those seminars aren't free, are they?

    I've always been satisfied with my purchases from Amazon so I will probably buy it from them due to their cheaper price.

    I know that I'll probably get it sooner if I buy it from Apple, but timing is not of the essence so it won't bother me if I have to wait an extra week or three in order to realize the savings.

    Hopefully everyone who buys Tiger and is close enough to an Apple store will be eligible for those seminars. Apple knows that once they get their Mac fans into the shop wallets become defenseless :D

    That didn't address the issue.



    I'd get it from Amazon, but I'd do it quick. Who knows how many copies they will get at launch.

    I'm ordering from Amazon, no sales tax, $50 rebate on the Family Pack.
