I'm cranky cuz I want my Tiger now, but perhaps once the hardware announcements are made we'll get the goods.

You talking about those G5 powerbooks that people discovered last year?

Core Image-capable graphics cards include:

ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
ATI Radeon 9600 XT, 9800 XT, X800 XT
nVidia GeForce FX Go 5200
nVidia GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
nVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL, 6800 GT DDL

Very strange since Apple and ATI only sell the Pro versions of the 9600 and 9800.

The 9800 Pro is completely compatible, even a flashed PC OEM version running at 2x in a G4.

you can use a flashed PC OEM version of ATI card in your G4? dude, awesome. buying a higher-end video card official Mac version costs an arm and a leg where I am currently living, but PC OEM versions of ATI and NVidia are plentiful and cheap

I have a question. I am planning on preordering Tiger (never preordered anything from Apple before). Will Apple charge me for it right away? Or will they wait until it starts shipping on the 29th?

why all the "pre"ordering. Are you ordering before you're ordering or somthing?? It's either ordered or not ordered, there is no in between!!!!
I'm having deja-vu and amnesia at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

It's the same as "this program was pre-recorded".

I ask because most places don't charge you until the product actually ships. I'm just curious if Apple is like this, too.

Just want to get my order in so I can get Tiger without having to wait too long.

I'm talking about the quad-processor information that was found in the CHUD control panel NIB file, among other similar hints.

The question is off course: What best to do with 5418 US-Dollar?

Oh, my God, expect every second the universe to disappear and be replaced by something much more bizarre.

But by that time, the whole mess will be swallowed by a small dog.

MacosX 10.4 Tiger does not require serial numbers.

MPMoriarty--

Apple won't charge you until it's shipped.

April 29th is also the day the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy movie will hit the theaters. Coincindence? Maybe Apple will initially release version 10.4.2? Will there be a towel? Perhaps a new Infinite Improbability CPU?

P.S. Oops. I see this has already been mentioned further up. Oh well, I still think it's funny.

The UK Hitchhikers site has an iPod advert. Go to trailers and click iPod. I've not seen that done officially before, nice that someone knows what's happening in the world!
