    I've heard quite often that Apple has given discounts and free upgrades to students who've purchased hardware just a few months before the release of their latest operating system.

    To what extent is this true and does it still apply?

    I think it is usually a month before, and it applies to anyone who purchases new hardware.

    Leopard is going to cost you 69 dollars (for EDU), just buy the damn thing.

    There's No Rule On When Or How The "FREE" Upgrade Will Work Nor When Nor If

    There is no rule. When they announce the shipping date - probably Friday October 26 - they will also announce the "free" upgrade deal between now and shipping date. It usually has a "you pay us $5-$10 shipping fee" attached to it. You can't count on anything before they announce it.

    a few months is not true. basically they'll off an up-to-date program that costs ~$20 for it. i think its a one-two week time frame or such before the release date.
