    I'm a student at James Madison University and just bought Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard for only $69.00 at my book store. Just thought people would want to know that universities sell it a lot cheaper than the apple discount.

    You didn't actually get Leopard, did you? Did you make a pre-order?

    I receive it on October 26 but still it's cheaper than what everyone else is getting it for.

    $69 at University of California at Santa Cruz Bay Tree Bookstore Nov. 1

    So I'll go to the party in Palo Alto but won't buy my Leopard until November 1 at UCSC here in Santa Cruz. :)

    I'm going to be able to get it for $69 at the Stanford University Bookstore Friday after 6pm for $69. So I'm going to get in the queue at the Palo Alto University Avenue Apple Store Friday morning, get my T-Shirt when they re-open at 6pm for the first 500 free T-Shirts. Then I will leave with my T-Shirt and drive over to Stanford Bookstore where I will buy it for $69 and return to the University AV Apple Store for the rest of the evening's party.

    Do they check ID? Maybe I can sneak in there and pick one up. Or just have a friend buy me one. Do they track your purchases?

    I bought iWork at the computer store and I believe they checked my school ID. They don't (as far as I know) track your purchases. As in, one could theoretically buy as many copies as they want.

    KCTCS schools are only offering it for $116, and my college doesn't even have any Mac computers so it's doubtful my bookstore will have it. Come to think of it, I don't even think my bookstore sells computer software period.

    The University of Nebraska at Omaha will have it for $69, according to an email that the Mac guy at the IT office sent out, but I am waiting for my next Mac at this point -- can't run Boot Camp on a PowerPC iBook anyhow.

    It's going to be $119 in the Apple Tech Store in our bookstore at the University of Kansas. And according to their website, it will only be at this price at 6pm when they re-open to sell Leopard on the 26th...

    Leopard

    My 1st generation MacBook just broke for the third or fourth time... and my local retail store says that apple will give me a new computer when I send it in. Does anyone know whether or not Apple will give me Leopard free with the new computer free of charge? I have a friend who had a broken iBook and sent it in a while ago and got Tiger for free, so I hope there is a chance that Apple will do this for me too.
