    ok so i went and i was approved for the 10$ snow leopard osx, i went i ordered it and then i put it in and let it sit for an hour while it did its thing. i came back and it said welcome to snow leopard and well now i read that its possible i just upgraded rather than full install, what would be the difference and my MBP is the one from late august, so a newer MBP but i feel i dont have the full SL on it. my version is 10.6.1 so maybe i do but i need some clarification. :confused:

    If you did a fresh install all of your apps and such would be cleaned off your drive. You would have also had to take additional steps towards erasing your hard drive as the SL DVD only drops in and upgrades, the path to do a clean install it no longer an option listed. You should know if you did a clean install.

    You upgraded, but there is no difference between an upgrade and the full install.
