Long story short; my Macbook was stolen from college early December, and finally the insurance company have spoken to Apple and arranged a replacement model. I informed them that Leopard was imminent and if they could hold off until then, and supply me with a shiny Leopard installed Macbook. They say that the latest they can hold off due to performance targets and penalties and all that crap is the end of March. Now if Leopard (and maybe iLife) was unveiled sometime in April, would Apple succumb to a free upgrade if I asked? I vaguely remember someone saying that it has happened. Just wondered if there is any truth to my vauge memories. Much appreciated.
