    I'm ready to buy a MBP. If I wait for Leopard, how long will I have to wait after its announced to have a MPB shipped with it?

    In other words, if they announce Leopard's release tomorrow, can I place my order right away and it will be shipped with Leopard? Or is there more waiting for manufacturing or something.

    Happened to me when I bought my first mac, PB G4 15" in 2005. Tiger was released 6 days after my purchase.
    I believe I "purchased" the Tiger upgrade from the Apple Store, because I had to pay $9.95 for it.
    That was over 2.5 years ago, so I am a bit lost on the details, but I'm quite sure I had to pay the $10 for the disc.

    Just so I'm not disappointed, I've told myself that Leopard won't be released until Halloween (anything earlier than that will be a gift). Does anyone know when traditionally the release date is announced? Is it two weeks before shipment, 10 days, a month? Just wondering

    Well, the deal for iLife 08 is 14 days, but you still have to pay 9 bucks. Should be the same for Leopard..

    Doesn't apple like to be all secretive? Doubt when we will know. It should ship on the same day, or no one would buy anything for quite a bit of time!
