Apple Posts Full Details About Snow Leopard Up-To-Date Program
Tuesday, June 16, 2009
Posted by: Fran

Apple posted the full details about their Mac OS X Snow Leopard Up-to-Date Program today. According to the company, customers who purchase a qualifying new Mac computer or qualifying Apple Certified Refurbished computer from the Apple Online Store on or after June 8th, 2009 that does not include Mac OS X Snow Leopard can upgrade to Snow Leopard until December 26th, 2009 for $9.95 plus tax. Customers that purchased their Mac from an Apple Retail Store or an Apple authorized reseller can also participate in the program here.

If you prefer to mail or fax in your order Snow Leopard, simply fill out this order form and send it to Apple. Just remember that your completed order form must be postmarked or faxed within 90 days of the date of your purchase of a qualifying computer or by December 26th, 2009, whichever is earlier.

It should also be noted that if you purchased multiple qualifying systems on a single invoice, you can either purchase a Single-User Upgrade Kit for each qualifying product at a cost of $9.95, or purchase fewer Single-User Upgrade Kits and request the "Right to Copy" for the remaining qualifying products.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard is expected to start shipping in September.

That sounds good to me. I'm on the verge of buying a refurbished MacBook Air. Cool

I just missed the cutoff date with my second Mac mini (a refurb) by a couple of days. Oh well, that's the nice thing about Snow Leopard. Spending $30 bucks for the regular upgrade isn't going to break the bank either. I just can't wait to get my hands on it.

Um, what the heck is a Mac mini 2.6? I would assume they mean the 2.26GHz BTO Mac minis, but that's a lame and confusing mistake.

And why aren't the 2.26GHz BTO models listed on the new page? Do they qualify?

I think Apple needs to get their sh*t together here.

That is confusing. I don't think they've ever offered a 2.26Hz refurbished Mac mini before. Maybe they are about to become available or something.

That's a better deal than when I picked up my IIci well after 7 was out, and had to pay like $35 and wait three weeks to get 7 from across the country!
