    I here the new OS for macs Leopard is coming out soon. If i wait to buy my mac will it come preinstalled? Instead of me buying a mac now and then buyign leopard when it comes out?
    What should i do? buy now or wait till leopard comes out (if it comes preinstalled)?

    if you buy now, you'll have to pay full price for leopard when it ships. you should at the very least wait until a ship date for leopard is announced. from that announcement, apple usually offers an up-to-date program where you can get leopard disks for a "shipping fee." this fee's ranged from $10 to $20. if you buy a mac on or after launch, leopard might not be pre-installed on the system, but the computer will include the leopard disk(s), enabling you to upgrade from tiger when you want.

    Your a better person than I am

    If you can hold out, you are a much better person than I am. Those new iMacs are amazing. But Leopard will be worth it, so hold out.
