Apple Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) pre-orders

While Apple hasn’t yet announced the final ship date of Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, Amazon is taking pre-order
. For $29, you can get the upgrade, and Amazon will probably ship the orders so you get them on the day of the release (at least that’s what they’ve done in the past).

Some warnings, though: to use this Snow Leopard upgrade, you need to alreday have a copy of Leopard on your Mac. (I’m not sure yet whether it will simply look at the installed OS or ask you to insert a previous disc to verify.) Also, this is only good for Intel-based Macs, so if you have a PowerPC Mac, you’ve reached the end of the line.

If you have multiple Macs, get the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Family Pack (5-User)
, and if you’re running a version of Mac OS X prior to Leopard, you’ll need to go for the Mac Box Set, which, at $169, also contains iLife and iWork.

Apple has said they’ll be releasing Snow Leopard before the end of September, so if you want to be among the first to get a copy, order now. Sphere: Related Content
