CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple Computer yesterday said the latest version of its Mac OS X operating system will go on sale at the end of this month. Its shares rose nearly 2 percent.
The highly anticipated upgrade, code-named “Tiger,” will hit shelves at Apple’s retail stores and authorized resellers April 29. An individual user license will sell for $129, while a five-user pack will be available for $199.
The server version of Tiger will be released at the same time, Apple said. The software will retail at $499 for a 10-user license, or $999 for an unlimited-client edition.
Apple has said that Tiger will include an improved desktop search that can find anything from documents, e-mail, contacts and images, as well as a dashboard tool that provides easy access to information and applications such as weather forecasts and stock quotes.
