Hi there!

Hi! waves I am new to this community and I am having trouble getting answers from customer support or the apple stores... therefore, I am hoping someone here can help me. I want to buy my daughter a new MacBook but I want it preinstalled and configured with the newest OS that will be released on Oct 26. Does anyone here know when those will be commercially available?

TIA!

    If you buy it in an apple store there is a good chance it will be installed. You need to be sure because they will sell their in stock MacBooks first. If you buy one that doesn't have it you would qualify for the Mac OS X Leopard Up-to-Date Program (US and Canada).

    You would have to ask them why. I can think of a few reasons. Depends on how much stock is in house before the release at 6 PM Friday. Depends on how much they sell before the date. A lot of people are waiting for the release date so the on the shelf stock is sitting there not being sold. Customer support would have to know the stock of every store and retailer to come close to even guessing when it would be sold and the stock with Leopard would start being sold. The variables are endless. Your best bet would be to go into the store you plan on getting it from and talk to them The manager might be able to give you a better guesstimate.
