Recently, a few of our clients decided to finally make the big leap and upgrade to Leopard. Before they ran out and purchased 10.5 for $129, I told them about the great deal that Apple has with the Mac Box Set. For an extra $40, users not only get the latest version of Leopard (10.5.6), but they also get:
- iLife ’09, which includes the new iPhoto ’09, iMovie ’09, GarageBand ’09, iWeb ’09, and iDVD
- iWork ’09, Apple’s productivity suite for home and office including Pages ’09, Numbers ’09, and Keynote ’09
The clients who were upgrading to Leopard picked up the Box Set prior to the appointment with their tech and have been very happy with the new software (and, of course, the new operating system).
A note for G4 and G5 users — iPhoto ’09 will be missing some slideshow features and the “Learn to Play” feature of GarageBand ’09 requires an Intel-based Mac with a dual-core processor or better. More details regarding the missing slideshow features on iPhoto ’09 can be found in a support document on Apple’s website.
