- Oct 31, 2007I just got off the Apple Store chat with Nina, who was a very helpful and
patient Apple Expert. She said that what is happening is that they already
had a bunch of iMacs built, with Tiger installed on them. Then, when
Leopard Day happened, they had to start doing erase-installs of Leopard. If
you order an iMac today, you might get one with Tiger installed - but you
will have the Leopard install disks, so you could upgrade them yourself. A
hassle? Sure, when you are used to getting that "It just works" freshness
from Apple (I was floored when my MacBook was fully charged out of the
box!) But, installing Mac OS X isn't difficult or terribly time consuming.
About an hour from start to finish, and involves you for about 5 minutes.
But, if you want to wait, that's understandable. Just wanted to let you
know that you won't be stuck with Tiger, just having to run the install
Plus, I hear big things will happen on Nov 6, so it might be better to wait
