    Hey everyone, first post from a windows machine ;]. About to buy my Macbook Pro today, first time ever mac user :apple:

    I will be buying the previous generation 15'' with the 128MB vram with the nVidia card, it is perfectly fine for what I am going to be using it with.

    Newegg has them new for ~$1500, which is a good deal for me. They come with Tiger though.. Would I be elgible for the 10$ Leopard upgrade? I'm not trying to be cheap here, or scam anyone.. I will pay the full price for Leopard if necessary, but if I am elgible, why not?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you buy the one off Newegg it might not include a Leopard drop-in disc. If it doesn't you can take it to the Apple Store and show them your receipt and get them to send you one.

    Right, it includes the tiger discs. So if I took it to the apple store and showed them the receipt from newegg, they would let me upgrade for the cheaper price?

    Haha sorry! That was a TYPO! I meant it includes the TIGER discs.

    So, any definite answer to my question? :D

    First buy the computer and when your a customer ask them for tech support. I guess they can solve it from there.

    Or you can get a friend to call and ask. I'd do it, but I'm busy ATM
