    hi.

    isit worth the wait for a new OS?

    i heard that after the SL release, there may be a refresh of the hardware specs too.

    i've searched the internet. an expected release of SL is on 8th June.

    so it will be approximately 3 months from now.

    so what do you think? :rolleyes:

    If you buy now don't they give you SL as a free upgrade? I thought I read on here somewhere that was the case. I dunno.

    Patience is a virtue.
    So, wait until Snow Leopard if you do not need an Mac urgently right now.

    it depends, do you have $130 to spend in 3 months? or would you rather wait and save the $130?

    hmm. as for the new SL, will there a whole lot of features?

    i don't want to end up waiting, waiting and waiting.

    i've been waiting since last yr and the wait has been never-ending i guess. :p

    If you been waiting for a year then just get it already. Your just delaying how much fun your going to have with your mac.

    You might not even install SL till it hits 10.6.1 or 10.6.2 atlease.
