    Pre ordered mine this earlier, family pack is only 39 which is pretty reasonable.

    exactually the same thinking, i have a 320 to go in mine before i do the upgrade, couldnt quite afford the a 500gb but hopfully i should see a little bit of a speed boast over the old 160gb unit which is now practically full.

    The good thing about the mac upgrades is that pricing will likely remain even after release unlike windows 7 which starts out cheap and is gradually getting more and more expensive pre christmas holiday rush.

    Oh, yes I see what makes it the MOST ADVANCED OS IN THE WORLD!

    Date in menu bar.
    The date can appear alongside the time in the menu bar.


    I do note the complete lack of any improvements to networking mentioned on the site.

    Have you seen the performance specs for the server and what hardware they run them on? Hardly standard industry level specs are they?

    how does it save 7gb of space when you upgrade does it delete all the ppc based crud when you install the upgrade and seeing as its an upgrade from leopard I presume that means you have to have leopard installed first before you can run the snow leopard installer ?

    Or can I just use the snow leopard disc and install snow leopard from fresh as a full installation ?

    Appologies if its a daft question as not had to do an upgrade for apple macs os before so its a new one on me.

    You can upgrade for the 25, but if you don't already have Mac OSX then you'll need to buy the full version.
