Yep it is a big difference, but I thought us Brits were used to that? It will be available at the same time, they update all the stores around the world as soon as the speech releasing it is over.

It will cost the same as Tiger does now (£89).

You're all kidding!! It's a massive difference in price sucky corporate pricing strategies - When is the exact release date 4 Leopard does anybody know??

Another thing apart from the displaying enhancements does Leopard actually make much of a difference in terms of performance 2 Tiger??? And does it take up space as well??? :)

Well there are a fair few improvements to Leopard which could have a positive impact on performance (fully 64 bit for one and it is rumoured to have better multi processor support) and yes it will take up space :).
