Me either, I'm installing the minute I get it on the 26th, which should be before all the people at the Apple Stores

Nice! I don't know when I'll get it, nearest Apple store is 2 hours away. I was thinking of ordering through Amazon since it's cheaper for some reason. Not sure when they'll be shipping though.

$130?

I love my MacBook, but come on, Microsoft doesn't even charge that much for their upgrade discs, and that's when the upgrade is to a completely new OS rather than an update of a current one.

No kidding. And a lot of people qualify for all FREE software (basically all Microsoft software and OSs except Office) from MSDN. I've never paid for any OS and I don't use pirated ones either.

Yeah, I get the (small) education discount, so I ordered through Apple. And, because I just want it on the 26th.

On Apple Stores: I now live where there are 3 or 4 stores in the metro area

This is a pretty significant upgrade to the Mac OS, probably more like moving from XP to Vista. Except, you know, in this case the move is actually worthwhile.

But people that bought an XP computer before Vista was available got free copies of Vista in the mail. I was looking at Macs before I got my current laptop and one of the reasons I got another PC was b/c they said if I bought the Mac, I'd still have to pay the $150 for Leopard just a few months later.

I found out today that my university is selling Leopard for $69 for 69 minutes, 6pm-7:09pm on Friday night. I can't cancel my preorder anymore, so I'm going to go to the bookstore, purchase a copy, and return it to Apple to get my $60 difference back.

i know they do have some timespan where if you purchased a new computer through apple, you can pay i think $9.99 to upgrade to whatever the new os is (which in this case is leopard).

i can't wait for it to come out though, it looks like it'll be a huge change from tiger. i also bought another external hard drive in anticipation for the time machine app

Writing from the new Safari 3 in Leopard

No issues yet, I did an Archive and Install so my preferences and programs were preserved. I really like that all the windows are uniform now. Quick Look is fabulous, very helpful. Spaces is very cool as well. I was using a program called Virtue Desktops before to do the same thing, so I miss the cube transition from that program a bit, but I think I'll get used to it.

Couple screenshots:

i'm also posting using safari 3 in leopard

safari itself didn't surprise me much since i'd been using the beta and from what i can tell so far, it's pretty similar to the beta that was on their site.

as for everything else in leopard, i'm just taking it all in. it's fantastic though

I'd been using the beta as well, but this is much, much more stable. The beta was beachballing on me on a regular basis, and would crash every so often. The final version hasn't done either yet. I Web Clip too!
