Upgrade from Mac OS X Leopard with Snow Leopard, a simpler, more powerful, and more refined version of Mac OS X. It delivers a wide range of enhancements, next-generation technologies, out-of-the-box support for Microsoft Exchange Server, and new accessibility features. It's the world's most advanced operating system, finely tuned from installation to shutdown.

Snow Leopard is an upgrade for Leopard users and requires a Mac with an Intel processor.

Launch date is 28th August 2009

The Family Pack is also avaliable for £39. This enables Snow Leopard to be used on up to 5 Macs.

Damn, beat me to it, was just about to post this myself. It's my birthday on that day, what a present from Steve Jobs!

Whats surprising is that the family pack cost's £39 for five licenses, that is less than £8 a license.

Pretty good value for money! Great if you have friends with macs.

Already ordered, cant wait

Beat me to it to just spotted on the news site and i have already ordered cant wait for friday.
Damn have no holidays left as i would have taken the day off

In your face windows 7

Im surprised that this is being launched on the 28/08. I've been asking in the Apple Store for weeks and every response was September. 'Is that the end of September?'.................'It's September, cant tell you anymore'.

Thanks for the heads up, I can now get ready to order my Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard pre-installed.

lol @ "the world's most advanced operating system"

:roll:

They might as well just call it "the bestest" and have done with it!

great, education price is the same but is higher education price lower?

Make sure all your favourite apps are fully supported!

Istat menus or 1password isn't...

Here's a list of some compatible apps

Been using this for a while now - OS X 10.6 (10A432) - it's really no different and don't notice any real speed increases over the last one.

using on MBPRO 2.4 4GB

£25 for higher education also.

awesome, does anyone know if i can upgrade my macbook and imac with the single user pack or would i need to get the family pack?

ok thanks will order now from home then!

If it is being installed on more than one computer you "should" buy the family pack as I understand it. However in the past the single user option would install on more than one computer.

Only kidding, great price really.

Not so much a deal as it is at the full price but thanks for letting us know that it can now be ordered.

Is it technically a deal though? I mean, this is retail price. It's a good price but it's not cheaper than its "usual" value. Not voting

Try telling that to anyone who's been putting up with Vista, and has just pre-ordered the latest Service Pack (codenamed: "Windows 7") for £50.


£25 is a flippin' bargain.

can the single user be used on 3 macs though? if not, then its not as good than past versions...

it can be used, just not legally. Exactly the same as past versions.

SCORCHING!!! I have started using Macs lately starting to like them, never encounter so many errors like I do on Windows.

7 is a completely different operating system.

SL is just refinements to the code.

Both worth the money. Will be upgrading to snowleopard once my dell supports it

shall order this later. need to flatten my MBP as it's got a bit sluggish and not had a good clear up for 2 years so this is the perfect excuse

It's worth pointing out that business users pay the same as everyone else, bargain.

Sorry as an MCSE and using Windows products at work and for a living, I am far from a Mactard I dont vote windows products down It was a reference to the price and the lack of features in windows 7.

Microsoft are holding back the world of IT with its attitude and comments that this is a service pack show how little people know Grand Central, openCL, etc that have been included make the whole system so much faster reduced the footprint by removing redundant non necesary items.

Take windows Mobile as an example extremely bloated runs rubbish and has been around 10 years now Apple came along and re-wrote the whole smartphone os book to create a smooth running system

You own a Dell :whistling:

That explains a lot:thumbsup:

Good price for the upgrade, heat added.

AFAIK, Vista and Windows 7 use the same (or similar) kernels.

But isnt Snow Leopard not about new features but more about un-bloating and speeding up whats already there? I'm not saying that there arent new features as there are of course.

Personally, i think Windows 7 is shaping up to be a fine product. I have heard good reports from users of Snow Leopard also. Cant we all just get along?

Search for the Snow Leopard is one of my favourite films, nothing to do with the Mac OS but it makes me chuckle.

Just to let you know that If you purchased a qualifying Mac or Xserve on or after June 8, 2009, that does not include Mac OS X Snow Leopard, you can upgrade to Mac OS X Snow Leopard for £7.95 :thumbsup:

I was going to post this too.

What I'm wondering is:

My brother bought a MBP a couple months back after the 8th June 2009, he will be able to upgrade to Snow Leopard for £7.95, will this mean Apple will send him the Retail Pack or will it enable a download?! If they send him the Retail Pack, then this will mean I can install it on my 2 year old MBP surely?!

Gonna have to try and find the answer for this :-)
