    So I currently have a MacBook Pro running Tiger 10.4. I would like to start making iPhone apps, so I need to upgrade to 10.5 Leopard to be able to do that. How much is that going to cost me?

    Also, I know 10.6 Snow Leopard is coming out really soon. Is it possible to upgrade from 10.4 to 10.6 and just pay one upgrade fee, or do I have to upgrade to 10.5 then 10.6?

    Thanks for any help guys!

    Buy the $160 Mac Box Set with Snow Leopard, iLife '09, and iWork '09.

    No problem - it is a bit buried (?under Specs - WTF?)

    I'm just going on the same price as the current one. I don't recall if we've heard a price for the new one.

    Oh, but Amazon has the preorder for 169, so that's the price.

    Yeah - I know (been around since Apple ][). Doesn't make it right - price isn't really a specification.
