    according to apple's site it'll cost $9.95 to upgrade to SL when it comes out when you buy a mac from today that how it usually works? I think they should just send you the disk for free if you buy a mac now.

    Yeah, for me Snow Leopard was the rockstar. And this is coming from a person that wasn't even excited about it before. But the price is reasonable and the changes to expose will help me out enormously as I tend to be a person who's work gets lost in the clutter and while the current version of expose helps, the new one will be much better.

    I feel the same exact way. Before... not so excited, but I probably would have upgraded within a few months of release (no rush). Now... I'm all over it! I watch a lot of video clips, so between the new Quicktime X (overall enhancements) and refinements of the dock and stacks (scroll large stacks!) I'm ready to upgrade on launch day.

    I really think it'll feel like getting a new computer again with the various speed enhancements and changes.

    For 30 bucks, I'll be picking it up no questions on launch day. Leopard launch was fun,and Snow Leopard looks like it will only add to the event!
