    I just got off the phone with Apple Care, and i was told that the $10 Up-To-Date package does not contain a full Snow Leopard install.
    If i was to format my Hdd, i would need to install Leopard first and then proceed to upgrade to SL.

    He did say that the $29 package of SL does contain the full install.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Hasn't anyone received their UTD copy yet? I'm curious to know this as well.

    If that's the case. I hope they didn't waste paper and put it in a fancy box.

    Does anyone have the item number for the UTD disk?

    I'm just wondering because Apple is sending me a free copy of Snow Kitty, and want to check if they sent me a UTD disk or the retail update.

    Is yours an update disk? My retail says MC223Z/A. If it is then it's true, UTD's are just updates.

    I also called local apple store and the girl told me that the UTD Disc includes full SL. Confused!

    That's not true. The UTD program is a program... not a disk version! The disk you receive WILL include a full disk of 10.6 Snow Leopard OS X! It will have the exact same contents as the retail disk!

    NO ISSUES HERE...

    since there are so many mixed ideas about this, i would just say try for yourself.

    Yeah unfortunately i guess we will have to wait and see...
    it would be unfortunate to have to format / reinstall down the road only to find out i either have to purchase a full version of SL.... or first Install Leopard and then upgrade to SL...
