    Hi,
    So I have finally saved up enough money for a $800 new Mac Mini. Yay. (I'm Only 16 btw) And I've been waiting for the release of Snow Leopard to buy it. So if I go into the Apple Store on Friday (the release day) Will my Mac Mini have Snow Leopard?

    Thanks for any help :)

    No, you'll have a drop-in disk if you're buying it from a retail store on the day of. They'll use the old stock.

    It will have a drop-in disc. You'll have to upgrade it yourself.

    I highly doubt it. Apple's not going to lose all that money by opening up the packages of the the Macs at the store, install Snow Leopard, and rebox them. That would technically make it a used product... in a way. It's only $10, but you might be able to prod them to get it free. I don't know. Worth a shot.

    Drop-in disks are NOT $10. They are free.

    Drop in disks sound good to me :)
    I don't mind installing it my self.
