  • Snow Leopard. Have It at Your Door Friday, Except for...


    If you were one of the thousands of people who ordered Snow Leopard from the Apple Online Store and have been waiting patiently for your copy of the newly released OS X update to arrive today, you might be out of luck.

    The OS X Snow Leopard Up-to-Date program promised users who bought a qualifying Mac or Xserve on or after June 8th of this year an automatic upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard for only $9.95.

    While not exempt from Apple's advertising, the Up-to-Date versions did not qualify for a delivery date of today. Only the full retail versions were overnight shipped to customers. Up-to-Date customers can look forward to receiving their copies of Snow Leopard in early September.

    As to be expected, customers who purchased new qualifying machines are not happy about not being able to run the new OS this weekend.

    Apple updated the product availability to September 2009 on their website:

    Mac OS X Snow Leopard refines the elegant Mac OS X user experience with lots of little touches and performance improvements that will make using your Mac even more enjoyable. It also includes a few big foundation technologies designed to tap the power of today’s computer hardware and provide a strong base for innovation. If you’ve purchased a qualifying computer or Xserve on or after June 8, 2009 that does not include Mac OS X Snow Leopard, you can upgrade to Mac OS X Snow Leopard for $9.95.*

    Expected Product Availability: September 2009


    UPDATE: The Up-to-Date version of Snow Leopard is non-refundable

      wow that's pretty upsetting, it'll only mean it is coming early this week, but i was kinda hoping to get it early, all my other peers got it days before it even came out, lucky sons of biotches, i kept getting to read the coveted facebook status updates of "updating to to snow leopard", and this was prior to friday's release. i want my snow leopard now! not monday or tuesday

      I think it's bogus that Apple is sending the Snow leopard DVD later for us who bought a new macbook pro after june (bought mine in july). I got the up-to-date program $9.99, but for us to get it later than those who pay the $30?

      ^ I agree. Why not hook the people up who just dropped at least a grand with your company?

      Quick question. Is the up-to-date versions the same thing as the $29 Snow Leopard that is for sale?
