    Snow Leopard
    I just started using a Mac a month ago and Leopard is working great. However, I was wondering what would be so special about Snow Leopard for which I should spend around 30 bucks? I generally use the computer for some college stuff, browsing, adium, movies and music so considering my usage would snow leopard make a huge difference or not.

    Just generally curious. I'd highly appreciate your help :-)

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    It is pretty much a refined version of Mac OS X Leopard.

    You can read more here if you wish: Mac OS X Snow Leopard - All you need to know about the new operating system from Apple.

    Or at Apples own site: Apple - Mac OS X Snow Leopard - The world’s most advanced OS

    In my opinion it is well worth the $29 upgrade

    Oh and one more thing. Can we upgrade it through the internet or would be needing a CD? As I'm from Pakistan thats why I am asking this actually as I don't think the CD would be available here that soon.

    Unless they're going to do something different, every major new release of OS X has been available on disc only.

    Hello people I'm new here.

    Snow Leopard is going to be released in September 2009.

    @The thread starter,I installed Snow Leopard(Beta) on my MacBook today and I can say that it's very much similar to Leopard in looks and feel. But it's fast....by fast I mean much faster. Basically,Snow Leopard is just the polished version of Leopard inclined towards the developers. For us,the consumers there is only speed and a few features here and there. For just $29, I'd like to upgrade to Snow Leopard.

    Thanks a lot for sharing your experience with us. I, being a user would definitely like my MacBook to be much more faster. Of course, it already has an amazing speed but for $29 getting more speed is a reasonable deal in my opinion. Thank you :-)
