Would you buy Snow Leopard retail version just for the box art?

    Maybe it's because I'm crazy, or like attractive shiny things to decorate my Mac lair - I plan on buying the full version of Snow Leopard when it's released, just for the pretty box art. :eek:

    Sure I'll take advantage of the $10 upgrade to SL for peeps who bought Mac PC's after June 8th - but this iMac I plan on purchasing on July 1st is my truly first iMac (my current iMac G4 is a loan computer from work) and I want an attractively boxed copy of Snow Leopard to go with it. Bit shallow, maybe :confused:

    :)

    Ooh. So the $30 Upgrade Disc with SL won't just be the ordinary grey disc? :eek:

    So you want to pay 120$ for a simple box, that has some art on it, just so you can put in another box or on a shelf?

    Sorry, but that 120$ could be spend for better things like an external HDD for Time Machine backups or a proper mice family.


    EDIT:
    As you buy your iMac after June 8th, you will have the right to obtain SL for 9$, but it will be a simple DVD with art on it and put in a simple white CD/DVD envelope.

    The $30 Snow Leopard will probably be what they sell in the retail stores alongside the Snow Leopard Boxed Set and will look similar to the Leopard box (I'm guessing). So, yeah.

    :eek: Well, yes. Wow I suddenly feel like such a total geek. Or maybe, :cool: I've always been one.

    Great news, maybe I'll be able to save money and have a pretty trinket for my mac lair.

    Umm, you may not have watched the keynote, but it isn't going to cost $120 - it is going to be $29.

    (As a side note, 10.3-10.5 cost $129 when released, not $120) lol :apple:

    For $29 I wouldnt mind! But if, IF, Apple charged $130 I would've definitely thought hard about it! I'm not the one for missing something out in my imperial collection of Mac OS X boxes :D

    I was referring to the price, when you hadn't Leopard, but Tiger and wanted to get Snow Leopard, so one would have to pay 129$, instead of the 9$ it will cost the OP since he will buy a Mac in July.
    I was a little bit confused as it seems, as the 29$ version might still be a simple box.

    We will find out then I think.

    A box is just the icing on the cake! I want Snow Leopard, because I like having new, updated things which most other people (my age, at my school, with older Mac machines) don't have..

    Wow, I just realised I'm a big show off..:eek:
