It doesn't seem that long ago that I bought iWorks 08 so I'm not too happy that it’s a full price update again. Sad Even Microsoft offer cheaper price upgrades to existing customers.

It would be nice to have a $20 dollar discount or something, but $79 bucks is a reasonable price to buy it over again. That's still much less than a MS Office upgrade.

I know this might sound dumb, but I haven't been through a Mac software upgrade yet, I've been using Mac's for less than a year...Since I'm already asking about upgrades, might as well ask about Snow Leapard too, once that comes out, will it just be a matter of putting the disc in, and OS X will upgrade itself?


although you can do what I think they call an "upgrade and install," I strongly urge you to go with the Nuke N Pave approach.

I've always nuke n paved when upgrading to a new version of OS X and escaped many of the woes suffered by upgrade/installers. I have read oceans of posts about problems suffered by people who went the upgrade/install route, only to end up, finally, backing up their files and User ƒ then Nuke n Paving anyway.

As another poster said, you get a fresh install, start with a clean slate and it's just less wear n tear and futzing around for you.

Good luck.

and if you haven't heard that expression "Nuke and Pave," it simply means to reformat your drive (I like to write Zeros; let 'er go overnight if need be) then install the OS on your freshly-reformatted drive.
