- Yes or no?...Yes. $29 bucks is about as cheap as it gets.
- Latest version?...10.6.4
- Easiest way...insert the upgrade DVD & follow the instructions.
- Cheapest way...go to your nearest Apple Store or order it online.
- Is it an involved process?...no.

Hope this helps,

- Nick

Isn't it true that Snow Leopard dropped right click contextual menus? I haven't upgraded, and am not sure I want to!

Nope. Contextual menus are still available in SL.
