I was going to hold off on my MBP until leopard came out but that was with an anticipated 3/24 release. It seems to me that if it was going to be released in the next 3 weeks there would be some sort of mention about it by now. I'm also thinking maybe it would be best to hold off on an upgrade right away to address any bugs that may be included. Anyway, I just wanted to know about any disadvantages to upgrading os x. I already know Ill have to update my iwork to 07 when it comes out, but what about ilife? Does ilife traditionally not come with a new version of os x? Would I have to buy updated versions of iwork, ilife, and os x? Also, are there any quirks in upgrading to a new version of os x? I want it to operate as if it came with my machine. Will this be the case or will have a permanent "upgrade stigma" attached to my MBP (anyone who has ever owned a PC and went from a new version of windows, say ME to XP, knows what its like to have an "upgrade stigma"). I really want my MBP and the only reason why I have been holding out is because of leopard. But Im getting the feeling that its not even on the horizon for at least a few more months. Any comments or suggestions regarding upgrades would be most appreciated. Thank you.
