As of today, nobody knows yet.
Everything known publicly about Leopard is published on this page:
Watch that page closely over the next few days and weeks and I'm sure a release date will be announced with great fanfare and flashing lights.eMac (1.25GHz USB 2.0), 768MB, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
yeah, i'm sure you won't miss the announcement... but jobs is over in europe promoting itouch... so gotta give him time to get back and prepare a new powerpoint presentation for leopard so he can have a big song and dance...
i'm quite anxious, actually....Dual PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
I'm almost certain no one at Apple uses Powerpoint presentations
In fact no one should use powerpoint presentations :-0
Like millions, I am drooling at the prospect of Leopard - doesn't need any more presenting for my money.
Enjoy Leopard when it comes.ibook G4 - 933, Mac OS X (10.3.9), 640MB

According to numerous posts in these forums, Apple has announced:

3. Any new machine purchased on or after October 1st qualifies for Up to date program: http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/
For more details visit http://www.apple.com/macosx/G4 450 MP Gigabit 1.5 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Does anyone have any idea when the next OS after Leopard will be?
However, I do have a serious question:
My ageing ibook has a proc. speed of 933. You have quoted the min speed for a Leopard upgrade) as being a little under that. Yet I think I saw somewhere the recommendations for the Tiger upgrade as over 1MHZ.
I find my 933 slow (actually painfully so) so really what might the responses be like with Leopard?
Surely I should get a new computer?
An expert opinion would be very welcome.

I live in UK but I am visiting USA soon. I want to upgrade to Leopard and USA pricing is much less than UK, are there any disadvantages of buying Leopard in USA? Also, does same apply to iLife & iWork?

If you currently have speed issues with your machine, you should read through my FAQ*:
An unhealthy system does not bode well for the ability to upgrade your machine. Upgrades generally add features, and don't fix issues that build up because of data corruption, a machine that is overfull, lacks resources, or has third party utilities which haven't been properly tested with the system which can all slow down your machine.
