Panther Update

October 9th, 2003

Apple has announced it will release Panther on October 24th (25th in Japan); apparently the reports of it going Golden Master (ready to duplicate, press and ship) after version 7B85 were accurate.

Pricing will be $130 for new buyers (some retailers have that down to $100), but recent purchasers get an “Up To Date” break: If you buy OS X (or, presumably, a Mac with OS X) between now and the 24th, you can get Panther for “free”–a shipping charge of $20 will be levied. G5 buyers get in on the deal no matter when they bought their machines. This is an improvement over what happened with Jaguar.

And the educational version will cost $70.
