Apple's entire CPU line now shipping with Tiger

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Along with new iMac and eMac introductions on Tuesday, Apple also announced that its entire line of consumer-oriented CPU-based products is now shipping with Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger." This includes iMacs, eMacs, Mac minis, iBooks, PowerBooks, and of course the Power Mac G5, which was announced last week. Additionally, the company also dropped the price of its built-to-order RAM upgrades. An upgrade to 512MB of RAM now costs $50, while a boost to 1GB runs $225. This represents a reduction of $25 and $100, respectively.

    Does Tiger come on refurbished machines?

    Refurbs always come with the OS they originally shipped with, that is, you get the exact same CD/DVD set that you would have gotten if you brought the Mac new.

    I'm not seeing the RAM thing to be true. Apple still wants $75 for a 256 MB ram upgrade on the iBook.

    Does the Mac mini come with Tiger? According to the Apple website, it's still shipping with 10.3?

    I won't buy a mac Mini unless they improve the specs to comply with Tiger.

    Even if they stick with 256Mb RAM which is a mistake in my opnion, $50 for the upgrade to 512Mb isn't bad, however, are we forced to buy from Apple to get the 512Mb RAM or can we still buy it tax-free from the catalogues with 512Mb installed?
