  • 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

      I have been looking at new houses all day, ugh. My world has been turned upside down as of late. But it gives me an excuse to drive to South Beach tomorrow to grab my copy at the store over there ...I know dear old apple frowns upon it but does it load on multiple machines...not that I would do that or anything

      I ordered mine on Wednesday. It did not arrive today, so I come here to hear about the happy people that got theirs. Best Buy and Apple Store are so far away that buying on the Apple website was my best option.

      It sucks. Well the Apple Store is only 1/2 mile from my house so I couldn't resist.

      I just went ahead bought one from the Apple Store. I will either return the up-to-date copy or sell it.
