    They will ship with it either installed, or a drop-in upgrade disc for you to install it.

    Not sure how quick they'll be in the Macs but if you buy one from today until Snow Leopard ships, it will only cost you $9.95 to get Snow Leopard.

    Where did you see that?

    EDIT: Apparently, it is here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/

    Interesting ... I think this is the longest up-to-date they've done.

    But it's only 29$ anyway. Apple wants everyone to be upgrading to 10.6
