    Here's a poll for those that went to the apple store for Tiger.

    I think that you should have "nothing" and "didn't go" as seperate options because then you would be able to see the percentage of people who went, that actually won something.

    But you don't have an Apple Store down under...

    I got an iTMS song but my pal got a 10% off card that the checkout guy didn't know you couldn't use with Tiger, so we both got 10% off our Tigers.
    :D

    I didn't take advantage of the 10% off though.

    I didn't go because the apple store isn't scheduled to open for another couple of weeks*. But I am looking forward to going to the apple store when it opens and buying Tiger and one of those 200-some-odd dollar gift packs they sell at the store openings... at least I hope they offer them when the Toronto store opens!


    * Based on the posted, and subsequently removed opening date of May 21

    I didn't go because I already had my copy pre-ordered and was hoping that it was going to come in on Friday but it turned out that it won't be in until Monday.... but I got another $30 off of Tiger because it didn't come in on time.

    If you didn't go you couldn't have won anything at the store. This is fine as is:)

    I didn't get a scratch ticket :( . I was at my schools release party where I got a free copy of Tiger installed. By the time I got to the Legacy Village store, it was 11:30 and they were out of tickets (though they still had tickets in Columbus at that time).

    Both my dad and I won 10% which we didn't need to use because the guy at the checkout counter gave us 10% for being "loyal customers." However a girl in front of me won the Powerbook to which she replied "What's a Powerbook?," while two other people in front of me won an iPod shuffle and an iPod.

    My, I'm really surprised that is now tow people that I know of that didn't take advantage of the 10% off. Everyone won something that attended the "Tiger World Premiere" event, just not all were happy. One of the employees took more than one picture of my wife and I, but didn't offer us a 10% discount. :(

    I won 10% coming in the first time. I won an iTune coming in the second time. I was hoping they'd give something to you as you left the store (dog tags, keychain, T-shirt, autographed photos of Steve Jobs, or anything!) but there were no giveaways other than the scratcher cards as you came in. A number of customers there were confused about whether everybody got 10% or only those with certain scratchers and about whether the 10% off applied to Tiger itself.

    I sincerely hope she had sense enough to take the winnings, or someone was with her to convince her to do so.

    I see the options have been changed. They seem to make more sense now :)

    I'm glad I went and got it. I did a fresh install and I forgot how long it takes to get things back up and running again. I'll just refuse my shipment on Monday.

    It was fun anyway...

    Didn't win a thing, but it was fun just being there. Bought some software at a discount, went home and ordered my first powerbook.

    So I'm not complaining!

    Do you mean that your Apple Store didn't hand out scratch tickets? To my knowledge everyone won something, most an iTunes song. Actually it sounds as though you won the 10% off. Was that how you received the discount on software. If I had won 10%, then would have also purchased a Mac.

    Somebody voted that they won the PowerBook - but no one's bragging about it in the thread. Anyone care to fess up? Congratulations to you! Did you have the option to upgrade any of the features (at your cost), or did you just need to take the one they had?

    If only I'd had a cell phone number for you - I had a 10% off coupon (at Rockingham store) and used it on a $20 iPod charger. I think you would have gotten more use out of it.

    I have a developer discount coming (will use it on my next Mac), so the 10% off wasn't all that useful to me.

    Didn't go, but I definately wish I had. Oh well, I still would have ordered Tiger online so I could get the edu discount...

    I got my PB from a scratch-off card.
    I got the one they had in stock, so no customization.
    But really, stock, these things are SICK! (need more ram, though!! only 512 is killing me!)


    I want to know who the other winner is! :D
