    I will be purchasing a MacBook on thursday. Will Snow Leopard be in the box or can I ask for it seeing as it's a day before? What do I do?

    I doubt you'll get it because the release is on Friday, not Thursday. Buy it on Friday or get it through up-to-date promo

    Does it have to be Thursday? Friday is when the Apple Stores (or Authorized Resellers) give you drop-in discs... for free.

    No. It will probably be in the box on Friday. They won't let you have it for free or before the date of release (Friday) either.

    Buy the MacBook on Friday.

    Otherwise, pay the $9.95 for the up-to-date program.

    + Shipping and delivery time

    OP, buy it on Thursday if it's the only day you can, Leopard is enough for you for first days/weeks. Also, if it's your first Mac, you may get disappointed because SL has some bugs of course

    Why don't you order the MacBook from the Apple Store on-line on Friday? I assume you will get the SL disks in the box, or at least be able to then get the upgrade for free. (can someone confirm this?)
