Just got Leopard! (in London)

Leopard just arrived for me! I got it via TNT. I ordered it from the Apple UK Higher Ed store on Oct 21st. The had given me a delivery date of Oct 29-30, but it came today (and four hours before the official launch)!

I'm going to install it now. See you on the other side.....

As much as the next person, I love taking photos of unboxing apple products!
What with my macbook, iMac, apple keyboard, wireless mighty mouse...

But you gotta love the geekness of taking photos of unboxing a disc!

(on a side note... I'm only jealous I haven't got my leopard yet...) :D

i got mine this morning as well at 11.30 from TNT in n.ireland but im stuck now at work here until 9 PM :mad: so have to wait until i go home before i can install it.
I did look at the box and i saw the preview images on this site yesterday and was expecting a big box but it's actually a lot smaller in size, looking forward to installing just watching the clock tick slowly....

Arndale, going there for 4..... in at 6 get my t-shirt then leave :)
Might see me there but I have a photography class to attend which is closer to the Trafford Center but I can imagine that store being packed as usual. We'll see I s'pose.

Yeah but your in the 'North' so it doesn't count :p

Who delivered it to you by chance? UPS or TNT?
LOL Note I don't have The NORTH of Ireland as my location ;)

TNT arrived 02:30 pm and I am quite out in the sticks. Both the truck and driver looked scruffy for normal TNT.

He asked me what the hell are these "things" he must have had a few of them

:):apple:

I wasn't expecting such a small box. For some reason I thought it was going to be a big box like PC games used to come in.

Didn't arrive here. Due for delivery on the 26th, out for delivery on the 26th, not delivered on the 26th :mad:

I tell you, the inability of courier services to deliver when they say they will and the implosion of the British postal service will kill internet shopping :(

My copy of Leopard arrived today at 15:30 (3:30pm, GMT+3), but I got it installed about an hour ago (I had some problems and had to install twice, actually), and it's working great. Safari FEELS SNAPPIER, and I love how you can resize partitions with Disk Utility so easily. Going to set up Time Machine in just a minute. Installation didn't break anything (even the Finnish spell checker Soikko just works). The whole system works faster on my MacBook, so I'm sure that this upgrade was worth 129 €. :)

The only thing I really miss is Pith Helmet! Didn't realise there were so many adverts everywhere, I have forgotten! Even dear old macrumors is full of them!

Hopefully an update soon.

Also Quicksilver dock icon won't hide anymore. But everything else is working perfectly, a very painless upgrade, only took 30 mins!

Stacks are very usefull, my desktop is clean and all my files are easily to hide, no more F11 to reach those files.
