Up-To-Date program launched for Leopard -- New Macs purchased in Q4 2007 can be upgraded to Leopard for $10

With the announcement of Apple's long-awaited OS X 10.5 Leopard coming on October 16th, and a ship date set for the 26th, new Mac owners were understandably a little miffed that they would be asked to lay out $129 or more for the latest and greatest features.

Veteran Mac owners, on the other hand, weren't quite as worried, as Apple reopened their previous Up-To-Date program to offer discounted copies of Leopard for $9.95 to buyers that purchase a Mac between October 1st and December 27th.

Users with multiple Apples purchased in the specified range will have to purchase a separate copy per machine.

Almost every Mac available for "new" purchase is shown on Apple's "Qualifying Computers" list. In addition to being on the list, and meeting the date requirements above, the computer must have been purchased through either the Apple Store online or an authorized Apple reseller; and the requestor must be a resident of the United States or Canada.

Xserve owners aren't being left out of the freebies either -- if similar qualifications are met, Apple offers an OS X 10.5 Server disc for free.

Qualifying Mac owners can order their Leopard DVDs online, or through a printable form.
