    I am sorry if this question has been asked before but does anyone know what the cost of Leopard will be? And if I have a regular Macbook 2ghz intel, if it will run it ok?

    I am actually a Mac convert, I have been using Windows since 3.1b. I had no idea what I was missing. I love OSX.

    I was going to switch no matter what, I'd rather die, then have to deal with Vista...

    Thanks!:apple:

    Unless somebody decides to sell it with a pre-order discount, or toss in a freebie.

    Apple stated at WWDC that there would be one version of Leopard and it would cost $129 retail. Typically places like Amazon will sell OS X at a discount of $99. Also, if Tiger was any indication Apple will sell Leopard at an even greater discount for students of $69 and a family pack for $199. The family pack includes five licenses.

    Family pack rules. Although, does anyone know if I buy a family pack and want to install it on several different computers, some PPC, and some Intel, if I will have any problem?

    No, the family pack will work with PPC and Intel Macs. There is no problem mixing and matching, Leopard will work seamlessly on both. (I hesitate to use the term universal, because although one leopard disk will work on both architectures, I believe you install one version or the other, but they are both on the same disk. If I am wrong, somebody please correct me)

    I heard a "rumor" that it is cheaper for people who bought a Mac within 6 months of the new OS. As well as a student discount?

    It's not 6 months. It's only a slight discount/free for the people who purchase a new computer right after a new OS release when the computers are still preinstalled with Tiger and not Leopard. Not sure about right before...

    As mentioned above, the student/education pricing is $69. Not available in retail stores, k-12 faculty or higher ed students/faculty or homeschooled only.

    Yeah, I'm a freshman in College, so I assume I will just pay the $69 online, and download it? :-/ I'd much rather get the box :)

    I'm very new to Mac sorry for the dumb questions:confused:

    That's hilarious, I hadn't seem that one yet.

    Personally, I think I'm gonna go for Leopard Basic Edition. I'd never use all those features in Leopard Ultimate. :p

    Why is the student discount not available in store? I don't want to order and wait for the shipping...

    Does Leopard use serial numbers for the install? That is, is my disc connected with my computer? I know there is no activation...because Macs are basically dongles...but just asking
