    Is it worth the extra $10?

    Yes. It's not coming out until September or later, though.

    On the more info bit of it, it says that you can upgrade to Snow Leopard as long as your order is after June 8th.

    As far as why I wouldn't want the latest OS, forgive me. I'm coming from Windows, where a new OS or update usually means tons of glitches, bugs, and general nastiness.

    I know. As soon as I had it posted I thought to myself "Oh. Wait. This is OSX, where everything just works. Updates are GOOD things! Not horrible, glitch filled abortions like Microsoft vomits out!"

    I just looked at it more, and I missed the part where it says September 2009. Does that mean that they'll just send me a Snow Leopard disk when they come out?
