The Apple Store has returned online with one noticeable change: the addition of Snow Leopard. Apple are now allowing customers to pre-order Snow Leopard, and says it will ship by August 28th. I would imagine it will also be available in Apple Retail Stores on August 28th, along with premium resellers and other outlets.
Customers who pre-ordered from Amazon.com should also get the same treatment, with various people saying their transaction has changed status to “prepared for shipment.”
The price has also stayed at $29 for the single user upgrade and $49 for the family pack. For an OS as advanced as this, the price tag is amazing. Apple hopes this will cause the majority of Mac owners to upgrade quickly, allowing Apple to continue forward with more advancements. Unfortunately, Snow Leopard will only operate on Intel machines. If you’ve needed to upgrade your computer, Snow Leopard has given you the perfect excuse.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and pre-order your copy of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, I know I will.
