5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic Upgrade to Leopard (10.5), 28 Aug 2009
Well, it's more of a makeover of Leopard than a full upgrade, but then Windows 7 is more of a makeover of Windows Vista than a true upgrade as well (IMHO).

This is a short review - the other two poor reviews were about Amazon's customer service, not about the Snow Leopard product, so I just thought I'd actually write something positive about the actual product.

Installation took about 40 mins on my old (white) MacBook.

Only thing I've found with Snow Leopard so far is that it disabled my Parallels 3.0 software - which simply means it's time to upgrade to Parallels 4.0.
Other than that, everything just works. Very happy with it.
Logitech Harmony 1000 - Touch Screen Universal Rem&hellip by Logitech

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with OSX, 27 Jun 2007
I'm not sure why the reviews below talk about issues with OSX? I assume the issues are related to their model of Mac rather than OSX as an OS.

I have an Intel MacBook, and a 2GB Cruzer Titanium, and it's fantastic - my only gripe is that I want an 8GB one!

It looks great, appears indestructible (have dropped it many times) and is very very fast.

Also works very well with Vista - used it as a ReadyBoost drive with no problems.

I removed all the custom software that was pre-installed on the drive as I have no need for backup/encryption software.
