I was hoping if someone can shed some light on this topic for me please? I would understand that if the OS was supposed to be released in the next couple of weeks, but we've seeing "waiting for leopard before I buy" for months and months before. Is there any other benefit for waiting? I would think that you can just buy the system and shell out another $129 for the OS. If you're willing to spend $2500 for a laptop or $3000 for a tower, you would think $129 is pocket change. But please excuse my ignorance, how else do you benefit from waiting?
