Buying An iMac, Wait For Leopard To Be Released?

Recommended Posts

I'm just about to back to Uni after summer and thinking of buying an iMac.

In the UK Apple store, students are getting discount and a free nano until Oct 30th.

When is Leopard being released? Am i correct in saying that the current operating system is Tiger? If i bought an iMac now and Leopard was released in a few months would i be entitled to a free upgrade or is Leopard simply an update via download?

I'm looking forward to buying a Mac, i have used Mac's at college before and love them. At home i have only ever had Windows and Ubuntu as an operating system.

Get the iMac with Leopard. Leopard is the first system that's meant for Intel Macs. Tiger wasn't meant for Intel Macs, Tiger was just a port to the Intel architecture. You won't get the full performance out of Intel Macs with Tiger. Get the iMac with Leopard pre-installed.
