Apparently the Up-to-Date program is back. I purchased a Bronze Powerbook 2 weeks ago. Since it fell within the suspended month, does anyone know if I'll get an upgrade price. AppleCare wasn't aware that the plan was reinstated.

yesterday, MacNN reported:

Apple has posted new info about its Mac OS-Up-To-Date program, which offers Mac OS 9 for $20 to all Mac purchases on or after "the official Mac OS 9 introduction date" (today). However, Apple is extending it to all purchases of Power Mac G4 and iBook systems regardless of purchase date.

Actually, the MacOS 9 upgrade for older versions of the MacOS (8.5 and 8.6) is a $20 rebate on the retail price paid to MacOS 9, and not a $20 price on the MacOS 9 package. Which means the price for someone with 8.5 or 8.6 and an older Mac is around $69 - $79 depending on where they shopped, and not $20 as previously posted. If somebody knows where a person with a WallStreet G3/233 and MacOS 8.6 can get MacOS 9 for $20 flat, please reply to my e-mail address below.
Thank you.
