Apple Goes Snow!

Posted By: Steve Bellamy on August 23, 2009 3:57 pm

Apple, the company that features skiing in much of its creative work, also employs a gajillion skiers of its own. Just stop by Lakanuki any weekend at Mammoth Mountain and half the people in the bar work at apple. And with its new operating system named “Snow Leopard,” set to launch next week, Apple finally got their OS naming convention correct.

Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard’s pricing starts at $29.99 for a single-user license and $49 for a 5-user license (Family Pack). A Mac Box Set, including Snow Leopard, iLife and iWork (productivity suite), starts at $169 for a single-user license and $229 for a 5-user license.

Snow Leopard plans to launch at the same time as Window’s 7. The simultaneous launches should provoke some nice arm wrestling.  The new OS, available only to macs with intel processors, is supposedly long on the under the hood and light on the exterior.  Faster macs = more Ski Channel content!

The Ski Channel is a big user of apple products.
