Apple to Launch Snow Leopard OSX on Friday
Apple has come out with a new operating system, called “Snow Leopard” (which happens to be my favorite animal). It is an upgrade to the already-popular and successful Apple Leopard OS, and starts at just $29, and it launches THIS FRIDAY! Apple wants all of its users to be able to upgrade to the Snow Leopard OS from the Leopard, which is why its starting price is so low.
The OS upgrade is said to be “Better. Faster. Easier.” Although, how can it get much easier than a Mac already? Because of the hype and the anticipation for the product, analysts are hinting that Apple will sell upwards of 3 million copies by the end of September (potentially up to 5 million).
The upgrade consists of standard stability and performance improvements, but will also feature better use of disk space: Snow Leopard is roughly half the size of Leopard, which will allow users (who upgrade to Snow Leopard OS) to reclaim 7GB of space.
Get ready for the release of Snow Leopard on Friday, August 28!
