    firstly; is your computer capable of the upgrade?

    what do you do? will you really need it? can you justify the $~200 price tag?

    Well if you need convincing you probably don't need Snow Leopard, so save your money. I'll be getting it as soon as it's on the store though.

    yea i have a santa rosa mbp.. i'm a student majoring in graphic design, and have a design job. I'm thinking that I've survived this long without leopard, so why not push it till this computers death.

    however, my mbp has been beachballing like crazy lately. will a newer os help this in anyway?

    I suspect you would see a performance gain from upgrading to SL, I would get the $169 box set, it's a good saving and it's a nice little bundle. However, as it's a work machine, I would suggest waiting till 10.6.1 when any of the minor bugs left over are fixed.

    The thread title has been changed since I read it before. The thread title never mentioned Tiger the last time I was here. Was something about having a Macbook and whether it would be beneficial.

    there are tons of visual tweaks and little cool GUI updates that are sweet to much around with. you wont really benefit much from that i guess.

    the beachballing doesnt always mean that it needs a reinstall, though it may help. it could be things like needing extra RAM, or whatnot.

    nice suggestion. :)

    I think at minimal you should make the move to leopard. You'll fins some performance enhancements that are quite nice. For me, I loved Tiger but Leopard seems to be slightly more efficient.

    My apologies, I was reading this thread at the same time and thought I was posting in the other. My mistake. :)
