    I have been reading about it and thinking of getting it but it doesn't seem at first glance that it does anything that Leopard doesn't already do..... just maybe does it with less disk space...... Got disk space coming out me ears, don't need to scrounge any back.

    That said I am still reading and may find something useful. I was expecting an upgrade of the already brilliant accessibility standard but it doesn't seem to have anything I haven't already got on my 6 month old Imac

    Upgraded my Macbook and there are a few changes to some menu's but not very different to Leopard in overall appearance.

    It does now keep asking me for password permission for 3rd party hardware and software to make changes. Never had that before.

    It does seem quite a bit quicker than 10.5.

    It's fantastic

    I got it the other day and I can't believe the difference it has made to my MAC. Much faster in fact so fast it's almost impossible to keep up with it. It's what I've come to expect from Apple. A wonderful product - go ahead and spend the £25 quid you'll not regret it.

    It took me a while to part with my G4 for a G5 PPC and wished I hadn't at the time. I then sold it on fleabay and bought an Intel iMac, what a fantastic machine that was.
    I now have an Intel Macbook and it's a fantastic machine too.
    Intel Mac's are streets ahead of the PPC's.
    Bite the bullet and move on then you will see what the Mac can really do.
