    I'm sure this has been gone over a fair few times, but i'll be damned if i can find an active thread about it!

    I'm considering buying a macbook this week, there's been plenty of rumours about ultra-thin macbooks, LED screened macbooks and of course the iminent release of Leopard. I'm just wondering exactly what the exhange/upgrade policy is from Apple.

    I remember either Gizmodo or a website like it did a thing before January's MacWorld, they worked out the earliest/latest day to buy a mac/ipod and still be eligable for exchange etc and clarified the details but i can't find it.

    Basically i don't want to buy my macbook this week, then on the 20th Feb they reease Leopard and say it'll be shipping with all new macs, and have to go out and buy it myself!

    You're good, won't happen. They may announce Leopard in Feb, for a March or April or even May ship date, and I seriously doubt updated, or newly introduced MacBooks are on the horizon for at least a 6-12 weeks. If anything, Mac Pros and Minis and maybe iMacs will be next. Outside chance of a new case for the MacBook Pro before you see new MacBooks.

    Your fine..10.5 isn't going to pop up out of no were, so if it was coming this month we'd know.

    As for those other hardware updates, your fine. The MacBook Pro would most likely see them first. Not to mention the MacBook isn't that old. Mac Pro and Mac Mini need update before the MacBook.

    Mac Mini + Mac Pro
    iMac + MacBook Pro

    Thats the order that updates will/should come.
