Apple Computer Inc earlier this week previewed the latest version of its Mac OS X operating system code-named called Tiger, which Chief Executive Steve Jobs said was far ahead of rival Microsoft Corps next major update to Windows. Cupertino, California-based Apple also introduced a 30-inch flat panel display in a sleeker and trimmer housing, its largest display yet, which adds to the 20-inch and 23-inch displays it already offers. That puts it up against other PC companies that sell large flat panels, such as Dell Inc and Hewlett-Packard Co. Apple, best known for its sleek Macintosh computers and the popular iPod digital music players, last updated the Mac OS X in October 2003 with version 10.3, code-named Panther.
