Yes folks, you read that correctly. Snow Leopard will be a $29 upgrade for Leopard users, and will hit stores a month before Windows 7. Typical Mac OS upgrades run about $129, so this is certainly a welcome surprise. As opposed to OS upgrades of the past, many of Snow Leopard’s more significant changes are under the hood, working to increase system efficiency and speed. Without out a slew of “killer features” to promote, some wondered how Apple would be able to convince users to fork over $100+ for a new OS. Now we have our answer. $29 bucks is a steal. Well done Apple, well done.
A family pack will run about $49. Unbelievable deal.
