    Question Snow leopard dvd
    I just pre ordered snow leopard from Amazon.com and I thought it had free shipping but I was charged $4.98 for shipping. So before I cancel the order I want to know if Apple is going to ship the dvd's for a total of 29.95 without a shipping charge. I can still cancel with Amazon but before I do I want to know if I can get it for $29.95 with free shipping from Apple or anywhere else.
    Thanks for a reply

    They did with Leopard when it was released. In fact, I'm waiting for Apple to offer its own pre-order. Last time I did this, I actually had Leopard on my door step at 11am the day it was released.

    On my $9.95 order that I placed with Apple in July I was only charged tax, no shipping. My total was $10.71.

    You must have done something wrong when you ordered from Amazon. I just did a pre-order from them and received free shipping. Cancel your order and go back and do it over. The free shipping is there - it's called "standard shipping". You must have chose something else.

    As for ordering from Apple, whether or not they charge shipping doesn't matter because they are going to charge local sales tax. Amazon does not charge sales tax.

    I can wait a few days longer from Amazon and not pay sales tax.

    Regards.

    Okay, thanks for all the replies and I know I must have done something wrong on the Amazon web site when ordering. I thought I saw free shipping when I ordered it. I will contact them today and cancel the old order and put in one with free shipping. Thanks again all.

    I just telephoned Amazon and they made the adjustment and knocked off the shipping and handling from my order. It's only for the $29.00 now. I must have made a mistake with my original order. Thanks again all.

    I have had my MBP for a week now. When this new version comes out, should I just upgrade or go ahead and wipe and do a clean install. If clean install gets the most votes, some simple instructions would be good. Thanks

    Hard to say since it hasn't been released yet. Prior to the release of Leopard, it was as simple as doing an in-place upgrade. Although that was possible with Leopard, most upgrade installations proved to be flaky.

    Since Snow Leopard is really just an evolution of Leopard, a straight upgrade should be pretty simple. But I would wait to get the verdict of the community using the production version before we make an assumptions.
