    Yes it is true so i bought my Macbook on December 31 for $1000 thanx to the reason that the store that i had bought my macbook made an error in there advertised prices online and they had to stick to there price even though it incorrect.:eek::D

    I am new to mac i have never owned a mac in my life. Of course i know the basic otherwise i wouldn't have bought a macbook. But now some one is telling me that there is a "snow leopard" coming out and new software thats going to be abailable very soon.

    My question is will i have to pay to upgrade to the new snow leopard even though its going to be released less than a week since i bought my mac. Or will snow leopard just be presented and not released until later in the year.
    please give me some advice

    Can't tell ya when snow leopard will come out, but I can tell you that it will cost ya. Its a new OS, not just an upgrade to OSX 10.5.

    We don't know when Snow Leopard will be released but it's estimated to be fairly soon.

    You will have to pay $129 to upgrade from Leopard.

    yes you will have to pay to upgrade

    Enjoy your mac. you will never go back.


    Snow leopard will not be that much different than the current leopard. So dont worry.

    Don't worry about upgrading to Snow Leopard too much. The current version of Leopard is already pretty good with all the revisions. I suggest you wait until the early adopters get Snow and report all the bugs and when Apple fixes it you can upgrade with no problems. :)

    You got a great deal with your Macbook!
