This is news to me: It turns out that the $29 “upgrade” version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard is just the same as the $169 full install version that Apple is selling alongside it.

So whether or not you’ve got Leopard or Tiger, you can just buy the cheaper $29 version and get crankin’.

Simon, wanna split this $29 fee in half so it’s even cheaper for us? Haha…

Actually Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard is only $25 on Amazon.com, so you can get it there to save even more money.
