“Numerous usability enhancements and important reengineering under the hood make Snow Leopard a worthy update to the king of operating systems,” Tom Yager reports for InfoWorld.
“If the question on your mind is whether to buy Snow Leopard, Apple has made it a no-brainer,” Yager reports. “The price — $29 for a single machine license, $49 for a pack of five — brings overdue sanity to runaway client OS pricing. Owners of Intel Macs should consider Snow Leopard a must-have because it’s optimized for their hardware to an extreme that Apple could not approach before.”
Yager reports, “This is an upgrade that most users will feel more than see. Some users, such as the visually impaired and developers of performance-sensitive applications, will now see the Mac as the only rational platform choice. For everyone else, Snow Leopard is a total rush, a shot of adrenaline to a platform that was already perfect in design… Everything about Snow Leopard is noticeably faster. Booting, waking from sleep, shutting down, scrolling in Finder, logging in and out, Quick Look document previews, app launching, PDF rendering, searching with Spotlight, and browsing with Safari rank highly among everyday tasks that run significantly faster in Snow Leopard.”
