    Just a note for anyone who ordered the UTD Leopard from Apple: Apparently, the disk you recieve will be the full retail version. I just got off the phone with (a very irritable) SCR at the Apple store, and after asking him 19 different ways whether my UTD disk will be the system restore disk that normally ships when you buy a new computer or if it will be the FULL RETAIL VERSION (my words), he finally threw down and said "Look, the version you'll receive for your UTD fulfillment will be exactly the same as the version you would get if you walked into an Apple store and bought it off a shelf." I then asked if iLife 08 would be included, to which he responded "*siiiigh* NOOOOO, it won't because that's a separate thing altogether."

    So although the guy was a bit of a douche, the short answer is: The UTD Leopard is the same as the in-store, full-retail version, and iLife 08 is not included.

    Thot U might like to know. :)

    If people work for Apple, they should be happy to answer Apple related questions. They should enjoy every aspect of the Apple experience. I would.

    Actually, the Apple Store rep told me specifically that that is NOT the case. Do you have yours already? How do you know it looks for a prev. OS?

    There is already a thread about this, so I don't think we need another. However I'll point out one thing: Different Apple reps have given different answers on whether the UTD disk was a full retail DVD or an "Upgrade" DVD.

    I can tell you this for now, the Tiger UTD disk was an "Upgrade" DVD, which required the presence of Tiger on the HD to install, and could not do an "Erase and Install".

    Wow, you can almost hear the Napoleon Dynamite-style "GAWWSSSSSHHHHH" at the end of that sentence. I had no idea I was basking in the shadow of the great Eric Lewis. So sorry to offend.

    NEway, ya, there are reports of diff. Apple reps giving conflicting reports. This was the latest & greatest. I'm sincerely hoping it is the full retail install, but I somehow doubt it. However, the rep I spoke to did specifically say that there is NO SUCH THING as an "upgrade" disk.

    You don't know that as nobody has a UTD disk yet. The only thing we have to go on is the fact that the Tiger UTD disk was NOT THE EXACT same disk as Tiger Retail.

    Today, I'm going to go purchase a iMac Core2Duo 24".

    I called the local Apple store and they said that it will not come with Leopard pre-installed, okay understandable. They said that they will drop the disk in the box. Will this be a so-called "upgrade" disk?

    I don't know, a lot of us probably don't know. I'm going to go test it out, I just want to be able to have the option of "Erase and Install"
