Finally! I've wanted an Apple ever since....well, ever since they came out, really. I finally don't have to run fubarred MS software for working at home and the things I want to do (graphics, music) are better on a Mac. So, it's about time!

Here's my question: I wanted to make the long drive to my closest Apple store earlier this week, but Snow Leopard is out on Friday. To save me a long distance call, will I be able to get a 15" MBP with Snow Leopard installed on Friday? Barring that, will I be able to pick up the $10 upgrade when I get my Mac or does it have to come through the mail?

Please forgive my excitement, but I'm darn near squee-ing like a little kid here! Hurry up, Friday!!

It might be a week or so until they start rolling out the macs with SL pre-installed on it, also so you know that if you do pick up the mac before they are pre-installed you will have to file the online order form to be able to get the $10 upgrade.

And I would guess that if you purchase a Mac after SL is released but before it gets pre-installed, you probably don't have to pay the $10 either.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

That's what I was thinking. When you go there to buy the machine, if SL is not pre-installed, then ask one of the employees if you can have SL with it for free with the purchase.

Thanks, all! I'll give it a shot and see what happens when I get there. I just wanted to get SL installed before I saved a bunch of things to the computer. I'm really looking forward to this--it's been hard enough to wait until Friday, I can't imagine waiting another few weeks/months for the MacBooks to come out with it preinstalled!
