Thread: now or later?
03-10-2007, 05:34 AM #1now or later?
Hi... I’m new to this forum and Mac but I have decided that I’m going to buy a MBP, I don't need it right now so I’m just wondering if I wait will Leopard then be included in the MBP price or will I then have to buy the new OS and install it myself?
Thanks in advance

If you don't need to buy right this minute just wait a while – maybe only a few weeks – and when Leopard's released it'll be pre-installed (maybe not straight away - if you buy the day it's launched you might get a pack of disks to install it yourself - but certainly soon after).

if you buy it before leopard comes out, you will have tiger, which is just fine.
if you wait, possibly for another few months, you can get a new system with leopard installed out of the box.
you can always upgrade from tiger to leopard anytime after leopard comes out for about $129 US.Please participate in our Member of the Month polls. Every vote counts! And remember to use the user reputation system!

It's impossible to say. Some reports indicate end-March. One thing worth considering is that this is a pretty quiet time of year sales-wise. If you have the money to buy now, it might be worth phoning Apple and haggling a bit. It depends if you're confident enough to stick at it. You'll get a better deal on the phone. I just got a great deal on a 20-inch iMac, Elgato EyeTV Hybrid, AppleCare and a Universal iPod dock.
As eric says, Tiger is great and will give you something to play with for now...

Buy the computer when you need a new computer. Don't look at what may or may not come out in the near or far future. No matter what you do, something better will always be released that is better than what you currently have.
When you need a new computer, and have the money to afford one, go get one.Blog and Photo Gallery: http://philolin.me/
