Are you wondering how HOTiSO managed to get a copy of the alleged final version of Apple’s Mac OS X Snow Leopard? Well, Mac Rumors is reportedly showing a legit image of a final production Snow Leopard box and disc (in Portuguese) and they conclude that this can only mean that at least some of the discs in certain regions are available if you know the right people.

It’s readily available for download, but Apple is making it hard to justify the time needed to download a 6GB+ disc by making the upgrade only $30.
