    Default The Mythical Snow Leopard (in Perth)

    I've called Myer and David Jones - Myer thought that they'd have it on Monday, David Jones almost made me laugh with "They won't give it to us until late next month to maximise their own sales."

    I'm stuck in work until 6pm on Friday so need somewhere in Perth on Friday to buy it. Does anyone know anywhere??

    I'd buy from the online store, but I won't be in when they deliver and it will end up being late next week before I could pick it up.

    Suggestions anyone?

    Thanks!

    JB HiFi? Apart from that, if none of those three will have it then I don't think there's anyone else who will late night on a Friday.

    As mentioned in the other thread, I believe Leopard didn't actually go one sale until 6pm on the Friday it was launched, so for all we know it might be perfect timing for you to get off work and pick it up somewhere - they allow late night trading on Friday nights in Perth still, right?

    Surely that should be "Meat sausages-inna-bun" with an option of "named meat sausages-inna-bun"?

    <frown> My cube came with Panther, when Tiger came out I drove nearly 350k's to get to an Apple store to buy it on day of release. When Leopard came out I drove 100k's to get it on day of release.

    I can't believe that I'm not going to be able to purchase Snow Leopard on day of release and physically hold it in my sweaty paw.

    I wonder how long it'll take for either Electronic Dick or JB HiFi here in Rocky to get stock....
    Good. Fast. Cheap. Pick two...

    A quiet bump to see if anyone knows who will be open late on Friday that will have stock... I know we've got a few folks here who work for resellers in Perth.

    None of them will now, until there stock arrives, if they'll have it.

    If they get stock, then those who have pre-ordered, should feel aggrieved if they don't get there's on Friday.
    I imagine, the Apple Distribution Centre, that will receive the product, will ship it out sometime today (at the latest) to ensure that it's there on launch day. If that's the case, then that means the ADC will have stock, so should fulfil orders on the Thursday for Friday Delivery, after all, they don't need to send stock to Resellers, that should have been done the day before.

    I ordered it to my school's address but does that mean I'm not going to get it until after the weekend?

    hay Lutze not quite perth but close - just got this email from Maxstyle in south perth

    Dear valued customer, Apple have announced that their new operating system upgrade Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will go on sale this Friday the 28th of August ! Stock will be arriving at MAXstyle this Friday morning (via couriers). As soon as it arrives we will circulate another email to let you know that it is now available from our South Perth store.

    Copies will be sold on a first in, first serve basis as initial quantities will be limited. Prices as follows: Apple Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Single User - $39.00 Apple Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Family Pack - $69.00 Apple Mac OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard - Unlimited Client - $699.00 Also available is the new upgraded Mac Box Set including Snow Leopard, iWork '09 and iLife '09: Apple Mac Box Set - Single User - $229.00 Apple Mac Box Set - Family Pack - $299.00 To help further celebrate Apple's launch of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, MAXstyle have decided for Friday only to discount their entire range of Apple laptop and desktop computers by 5%. These will be sold on a first in, first serve basis but if we run out you will still be able to purchase with the discount on Friday and pickup when more stock arrives.
    Snow Leopard builds on a decade of OS X innovation and success with hundreds of refinements, new core technologies and out of the box support for Microsoft Exchange. Apple engineers have refined 90 percent of the more than 1,000 projects that make up Mac OS X. Users will notice refinements including a more responsive Finder; Mail that loads messages up to twice as fast; Time Machine with an up to 80 percent faster initial backup; a Dock with ExposÚ integration; QuickTime X with a redesigned player that allows users to easily view, record, trim and share video; and a 64-bit version of Safari 4 that is up to 50 percent faster and resistant to crashes caused by plug-ins. Snow Leopard is half the size of the previous version and frees up to 7GB of drive space once installed. Snow Leopard requires a minimum of 1GB of RAM and is designed to run on any Mac computer with an Intel processor. Full system requirements can be found at Apple - Mac OS X Snow Leopard - Technical specifications
    Hope to see you Friday !

    Regards
