    Hello,

    I know when Leopard Came out, i waited in line at the apple store, which opened at 4pm.

    I am wondering if Snow Leopard will have the same thing, where the apple stores will open at 4pm, or if since this isn't a "big" of an update that it would just come out when the stores open.

    Please let me know what time I should go to the apple store, whether it be when it opens in the morning or at a certain time.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    There was no time mentioned in the PR statement, and many Apple Stores have confirmed that Snow Leopard will be available once the store opens on Friday.

    And Leopard launched at 6 p.m. not 4 p.m.

    If you plan on hanging around here, you might want to try to figure out the "search" feature at the top of the forums.

    I would bet it's just available when the store opens. They didn't mention a timeframe and it's not a big release, so no fanfare.

    you can bypass the time factor and just order it online...
    They even have free shipping for it ATM. Just did that last night and it's shipping on friday so i assume i'll have it either monday or tuesday.

    Ordering it online will get you it earlier in the day.

    Seriously? You're going to pirate a $29 upgrade?

    Get off of our website. You want it? It has already been out for a month. Just don't expect us to help you with it after you have it.

    I'd rather wait for the final DVD version. It's not about the price, it's about the convenience. It takes about 10 minutes to get it off some "sites" for me. To drive to a nearby Apple store will take a 5 hour round trip.

    I'll eventually buy a legit copy when I get around to it though. It's not like the price is holding me back (plus I want a good backup).

    Order it online and get it the day of release... or just use a lame excuse to pirate it...

    the apple store here in the new orleans area had no clue. They told me i would have to get it online only for the upgrade and she said some other gibberish. She must've been new. Im ordering online from apple.com. It will be shipped early in the day i hope.
