    Apple has already sent me the upgrade dvd and they are going to send me a copy of the full install dvd. is there any benefit of one over the other? i ran the upgrade dvd but i'm curious if anythng would change if i ran the full install. by change i dont mean something secret :noes:

    i didn't know they even made an upgrade dvd...since you can only purchase a new copy (that is, no upgrade price)

    I got the upgrade for 10$ because I bought my PB after april 12th but before the 29th. Yes I know I shouldn't have bought before the 29th but the bastards old me they wouldn't be pre loading for abour 3 months. Guess they fucked me

    i got Tiger shipped to me for $10, it should come tomorrow.

    edit: i meant to say that my order says "Tiger Up-To-Date", so it kinda sounds like its an update. if i can do a full wipe and install of Tiger, that would be pretty nice, since they didnt ship my system with Tiger.
    we shall see

    actually i just thought they werent preloading, but i may be wrong. i just got my PB and it had it preloaded, but i also got a custom lappy (i gotta have my 12mb in my videocard). so im not sure if it was because it was custom or theyre just preloading now

    i just got my "up-to-date" dvd in the mail, and it is an upgrade disk, i dont know yet if i can do a fresh install from it, i dont think i want to go thru reinstalling all my stuff right now, so i am thinking about just doing the upgrade

    thats why i said in the first post that they are sending me the full install dvd. i'm not asking if i'm going to get one or the other, i'm asking whats the difference between the upgrade dvd and install dvd


    reading comprehension > you
