    How much are the releases of the MAC OS usually then? I am VERY new to all of this having only purchased my first one a couple of weeks ago - probabaly a mistake time wise

    Not usually that expensive as there is no upgrade route and you need a Mac anyway. Think its around £60 from the education store.

    Yep ... I'll be getting it for me and one of the other teachers ... the plan is to roll it out to all machines next summer along with the updates for iLife and iWorks.

    I was told the same thing today, but this guy also added when it comes out apple will be also releasing the final version of bootcamp. Good you might think because it will no longer be a BETA, but apparently Apple are sending updates to the current installs of bootcamp BETA so it will stop functioning and the final bootcamp is only Leopard compatible.

    Hell yeah...

    Lots of reasons to get Leopard

    New Dock
    Bootcamp
    Leopard Server

    The new leopard server looks to have some great improvements - hope the new SIU 2 lives up to my expectations.

    That would be my plan too- Leopard Server and clients in and configured by the end of the summer.

    I understand that imovie 08 has been extensively changed and they've removed some video editing features that may limit it's usefullness for teaching. You can still stick with imovie HD and upgrade the others all on the same machine so not really a problem.

    iworks is nice but office 2008 if you can afford it is the dogs knackers.

    iMovie in iLife08 is aimed at quickly getting clips of film spliced together and onto a DVD or a short clip for YouTube or your .Mac account.

    If you want to do a bit more they still include iMovie HD for all the funky transitions but it does not manage your clips to the same extent iPhoto does.

    I still prefer to use iMovie HD, but I did find the clip management very handy in the new version. Almost getting close to Final Cut Express in some things.
