Do you think its worth getting a new macbook now, within a few months.... or is it best to wait till leopard comes out?

Is there a estimated or confirmed release date for leopard?

Don't quote me on this but I think Leopard is due out in the October timeframe. I would just buy now as the OS X upgrades aren't real expensive like Windows Upgrades are. Then again I'm impatient so hence the buy now! You won't be disappointed though.

I was actually wondering the same thing. I been dying to buy a Macbook but that was kind of holding me back. I doubt there will be any more hardware upgrades on them now before leopard?

I think I will go for Tiger and upgrade then when leopard comes, as egandolfi said its not as if we have to shell out for Windows Vista?

It was due in June, now it's October and there's always the chance it could be Christmas.

If you want to wait until then, you don't really want a Mac do you!

Who knows if they'll be any Macbook tweaks, but even if there were, it won't be anything major.

How much do/will the upgrades cost?

Also, how do I get them? Do I go into the apple store and say, 'Hello, I'd like an OSX Leopard CD/DVD please!' or do I just download it?

Cheers,

It will probably be $130, $70 if you're a student. You can either go to an Apple store, or buy online. There is only 1 version of OS X, so you wont have to tell them that you need OS X version 10.5 Seriously Ultimate Media Center Signature Version.

Thanks, and I must say that's incredibly cheap compared to Windows!
