    Just like the subject says, I'm ready to buy the new iMac but have not seen anything about providing a drop in version of Snow Leopard to help boost sales before SL comes out. I thought they did this with the release of Leopard, do you think it will happen soon with SL or will I have to wait until the release date?

    They will probably announce it when they announce the release date for SL. Sept/Oct at the earliest.

    Maybe wait with your purchase until the WWDC and see what Apple has to announce. I'm following my own advice on that too. :eek:

    "Drop-ins" do not appear until after the release/shipping date of a new OS. Macs purchased after that date that don't already have it installed get either a drop-in or can participate in the Up To Date program, receiving a DVD (for usu. $9.95 shipping).

    So, I hope Apple announces a shipping date of SL at WWDC. I'm crossing my fingers.
