    A couple burning questions from a potential mac buyer...
    Hi,
    2 questions:

    1) If i buy a Mac before the new version (Leopard) comes out, will i have to pay to upgrade to the new version when it's released in october?

    2) Am I write in thinking that with bootcamp, i can dual boot with windows XP (but i have to restart the mac)?

    Thanks

    1. You wont be forced to buy it because of system constraints or anything but you can upgrade if you want and yes you will have to pay the full price.

    2. Yes you will have to restart to switch operating systems with bootcamp, not so with parallels.

    1) if you Purchase your mac 2 weeks before leopard comes out then i think you get a free upgrade...

    Ok. If not how much about would the upgrade cost, and would it be necessary?
    Does boot camp work in Tiger?
