i think it is sad that Apple releases software right after Christmas and wants full price for it from all the people who just got new Macs for Christmas.  They should be a bit more generous, like 12/1/2008 instead of 1/6/2009.

I agree. Apple is getting a bit too greedy
We just bought 2 new Mac’s… un boxed for a week. And the Aple store, same. Rude and offensive

We just got 2 new ones as well in late December. One on the 20th, 1 on the 26th.

Bad bad move.
