Its true. Despite no one actually yet having actually seen on in real life (only the mocked up piccies on the AppleStore website) ... I actually SAW an actual presinstalled Leopard machine in PC World, Leeds UK. No. Really. I did!. There were about six of them huddling .. in unopened boxes .. under a shelf there. And (per usual for PC World) no one was looking at the low-key display - only me. In a rather excitable state. Sad. But true, readers. Anyway - before the staff whisked them off to their storeroom in case Bill Gates saw `em ... I managed to take a coupla snaps. One showing the outer box (its a Tiger box but has a big black Apple sticker in the corner proclaiming Leopard is preinstalled) and a close up of said sticker. These were 20" 2.4ghz machines and the sales-droid (Assistant #6) told me "theyd only come in yesterday". Nice. So ... does this mean I just MIGHT be in with a chance of getting one of this batch when my (replacement) iMac is shipped from Shanghai in the next coupla days?. I can hope, can't I?. Anyway - get over to Leeds if you cant risk it ... dont expect a discount or anything .. (its PC World fer chrissakes!) and coo over them - keep them from being lonely (cos they will be in the least-Apple friendly retailer in the world .. ever) and reassure them that its not their fault theyve not been snapped up .. its the fact that Apple products are only stocked there due to some kind of contractual obligation in those places - not exactly high profile items, shall we say. But hey!. Come on. Rejoice .. theyre comin' thro' at last!. Hurrah!.
