I love that the upcoming version of OS X for the Mac, 10.6 Snow Leopard, is available for the dirt cheap price of $29 to upgrade. The family pack that allows you to upgrade up to 5 computers in a household is $49.
Couple of things:
- This is the first version of OS X that is Intel only.
- The upgrade only works if you’re running Leopard (10.5). If you’re on Tiger (10.4) or earlier you have to buy theMac Box Set – (with Snow Leopard)
or Mac Box Set Family Pack with Snow Leopard (5-User)
The new operating system has been promoted as a refinement of Leopard as opposed to an entire new OS. Focused on improvements as opposed to new features.
