    Just bought a 24" iMac in September.

    I know that many Windows manufacturers offered free upgrades from Win-XP to Win-Vista for buyers purchasing a PC in the 3 months before Vista was released.

    Wonder if Apple normally does that for new OS releases?

    I think only if you buy after the Leopard release date is announced (but before Leopard ships)

    I might be wrong though

    That's typically what it's been in the past.

    ETA: Also, I think they did that because MS kept missing target dates and PC makers were worried they wouldn't sell any computers before Christmas as people held out. I doubt the holdouts for leopard are quite so great (although I'm sure there are a bunch here).
