Mac OS X Leopard buying tips from NY Computer Help

Leopard is now available for macs.  This is the Mac OS X Version 10.5 operating system released from Apple.  This new operating system touts over 300 new features geared towards auto-backups, enhanced desktop, and easy mac-file sharing.

So, what’s the best way to get your hands on Leopard?  Should you go to the store?  Buy online? 

The regular price from Apple is $129.00  For online enthusiasts, Amazon and MacMall drops the price down to $109.  You may also buy Leopard in stores at CompUSA for $99.99 after a mail-in rebate.  The CompUSA rate seems to be the cheapest although we’re not big fans of waiting 2-3 months for a rebate.

Going to the store or buying online will give you the same media and box from the above vendors.  Some online sites just provide the OEM version, or the CD without the box.  It doesn’t really matter which way you choose to purchase.  It is up to you and your preference.
