Apple’s Snow Leopard disc will install on Tiger Intel Macs

In his review of Snow Leopard, Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal, Mossberg reveals that those who have been hesitant to upgrade their Mac will be able to take advantage of Snow Leopard’s bargain price, without the need to install the intermediate Leopard operating system first.

“For owners of Intel-based Macs who are still using the older Tiger version of the Mac OS, Apple is officially making Snow Leopard available only in a “boxed set” that includes other software and costs $169,” Mossberg said. “The reasoning is that these folks never paid the $129 back in 2007 to upgrade to Leopard. But here’s a tip: Apple concedes that the $29 Snow Leopard upgrade will work properly on these Tiger-equipped Macs, so you can save the extra $140.”


Upgrade Path Alert for Snow Leopard

Please note, that only Apple OS X Leopard users are eligible for the Snow Leopard upgrade. Tiger & earlier OS users will need to purchase either the upgraded Mac Box Set (approx. $184, which includes Leopard, iWork, and iLife), or just Leopard + Snow Leopard Upgrade (approx. $160). Also, Snow Leopard will only run on intel-based Mac computers.
