Running 10.6.8 and not wanting to upgrade could cause a problem with expanding
Just thought would let you all know of a few rumours on the Apple front.
As we all know Apple can't comment on the release of future products although I've started doing some planning now as we always seen to get a rough time in Education in the UK due to the time the products are released.
The iMac is long due an upgrade, nearly a year since the last upgrade

Its no secret that Mountain Lion is coming and this could cause a problem if you're wanting to expand your network and currently running 10.6.8
With the problems and how Lion was incomplete I know quite a few Schools are still on 10.6.8, has everyone on here made the jump to Lion?
Whilst this is only a rumour on the link below it could very well happen. Time for it to happen who knows....Just before start of summer as soon as we planned the summer installs is my bet!!

I think lion is more incomplete with its web products. Eg apache, profile manager, wiki. If you want to use it as a open directory / Active directory integration solution lion does the trick. Problem is if you buy a new machine server or mac pro server it will not let you downgrade without jump through a lot of hoops!

Completely agree although after speaking to a colleague in our technical team I was under the impression that it's going to even harder on/when/if a new iMac is released with Mountain Lion.

To be honest without seeing the full release of mountain lion its hard to predict! They are bring out more application signing to avoid any more mac malware. This maybe what your colleague is talking about.

You could always buy refurb XServe or iMac to allow you to stick with 10.6?

You can pick up a Core 2 duo Mac mini for less than £300. Such great little machines

They may not upgrade the edu spec iMac which would mean you could still run 10.6.8
