This morning Apple issued a press release officially announcing OSX Leopard. The software will go on sale October 26th at 6 pm at all Apple stores, or you can pre-order it online right now. If you pre-order the software you will get free delivery, and it will be delivered on the 26th (so there’s no real reason to go wait in line at an Apple Store unless you just want to).
Pricing, as expected is, $129 for a single user license, and $199 for a family pack. The minimum system requirements for Leopard are a minimum of 512MB of RAM and an Intel, PowerPC G5 or G4 (867 Mhz or faster) processor.

Apple also announced Leopard Server edition. You can read that full press release here.
I just pre ordered mine, it best ship Friday, I don’t want to wait the weekend without it.
I pre ordered but was unable to use my $100 iPhone credit.
If you were one of the first ones to get credit you might need to reapply for it. Users who got it on the first day had some problems using it (I was one of them).
The iPhone credit is no different than an Apple gift card, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t have been able to use it.
I want to order a Macbook. I am fine with getting Tiger and then paying the $9.99 for the upgrade to Leopard, but there are so many rumors of an upgraded MB coming in mid-November. What do you guys think?
If you keep waiting, eventually, there will be a new Macbook. There always will be. What I think you should do is look at the Macbook that is available now…if it has the power to do what you want – then buy that bad boy.
If it doesn’t, then hold off until the next upgrade, and see if that one has the power that you need.
As long as it has the power to do what you need it to do, it’s a good buy. Even if a new one comes out the next day.
Sounds like the best advice I have gotten.
I may jump up the the MBP and not worry about it. I like the looks and size of the MB but the extra screen real estate might be nice to have in the MBP.
