Leopard launch is getting closer and closer and this means pre-order deals; prices, other software bundle with it, other items included, etc.

Where are some of the best pre-order deals you've seen?

i REALLY hope the education price of Lepoard is still $69, which is what Tiger was... however, the increase in education prices of iWork and iLife ($49-->$71) has me very worried...

How can we check the price of Leopard for students?

Can we get the student rate at an Apple store of do we have to order it?

Can't justify spending $129 bucks on an OS. But I can justify spending $2,500 on a new MacPro WITH Leopard on it. lol
$129 is a bargain compared to Windows Vista to get all the features of Mac OS X in Vista you have to get premium.

I just checked... and no discount! What the heck??
I just ordered Leopard from the online education store. It was a whole $13 discount ($116). Oh well, I used my iPhone coupon and ordered the family pack.

I was really hoping it would be less than $100, so I could get that for my MBP and upgrade my wife's MBP later after I determined it was stable enough for her.

Between this and iLife/iWork earlier, it seems educ. discounts are getting crappier.

I remember the days where Apple hardware was really expensive but educ. discounts were awesome, like 60% or so off retail.

Ordered my copy this morning, but bit concerned by the shipping date "Ships by 26th"

does that mean it'll arrive at my house on the 26th, or they will just ship it on the 26th?

Would like this clarified, as like most of us here, i'm dead excited about getting my grubby mits on the big cat! :D

Oh and dunno if it'll make any difference but i live in the UK

Amazon Price

Hmm...unless I'm mistaken, I thought Amazon was selling it for $129.99 this morning. Now, it changed to $109.99 with no rebates therefore I couldn't pass it up.
