    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?

    Check Amazon.com, they are doing Leopard 10.5 preorder for 129.99, and family pack @ 199.00.

    That sounds suspiciously like MSRP.

    I'll buy through Apple. I live in WA state so I pay tax through Amazon.

    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...

    I'll just get mine for free when I buy a new MP at the end of the year.

    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 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.
