After Apple released OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion, the tech giant pulled all support for the older OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard from the their website. Now, Apple is once again selling physical copies of Snow Leopard at their online store for $19.99 with free shipping.

This is good news for users with older Macs who still haven’t made the jump to Apple’s Mountain Lion OS X v10.8, as users need to have installed OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard on their Macs to gain complete access to the Mac App Store, from which they can purchase and download Lion OS X v10.7/Mountain Lion OS X v10.8.

    Thank $deity! It’s been a complete hassle telling customers that they can’t buy it in the store OR on the website. They had to CALL the online store to get it which was just weird. Now if only they would let us sell it in store again, even just as a service part at the bar.
