    I have recently purchased a 24" iMac and wondered if it will be possible to run Leopard on it? Will this program cost a fortune to buy when its released?

    Yes and it will probably be around £90 or $130.

    No, iLife has always been $79, and will not be included in Leopard.

    There is chance that Leopard will be $99 instead of $129 as previous OS X releases.:D

    That's cheap. Retail upgrades to Vista from XP will be over £200 probably.

    Yes I know its cheap. I mean top price as in a good price. I wouldn't pay a £1 for any Windows OS.

    Really nasty ones probably around £300. I think I may have overestimated. Full retail XP Pro is £246.75. This is probably a better comparison to OSX though as the retail DVDs of Tiger (and I assume Leopard) install without needing you to have a prior OS CD/DVD to hand unlike upgrade versions of Windows.

    For reference an XP Pro Upgrade is actually £165.66
