Well, 95% of the changes are actually behind the scenes.
Idk how familiar you are with Apple's history, but they only recently phased out Power PC in favor of Intel processors (about 3 years ago). So to accommodate this transition, starting with Tiger, OS X was written to support both Power PC and Intel processors. Snow Leopard is the first version to support Intel only. This means that it uses about half the coding of Leopard, making it faster to install, faster to boot up, faster to shut down, and an overall more stable operating system. The other benefit this provides is that it frees up about 5 GB of space on your hard drive.
Additionally, it was written to take full advantage of multi-core processors by sending different processes to different cores simultaneously. Since your Mac is less than six months old, you most definitely have a multi-core processor. You will see faster performance with this version of OS X.
And, it's $29. So for that price? It's very good.
oh interesting...i might have to get it then. thanks.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
yeah but what's point of getting a mac machine to run windows while you can save tons of money and get a real pc? and have money left for fun stuff!
also guess what macs are overpriced pcs the only difference from those intel macs and pcs are:
EFI(Extensive Firmware Interface) instead of bios (can be emulated on pcs with a USB Header divice)(some mobos even have this now)
and the replacement of Master Boot Record with GUIDPartition Table (can be overcome to emulate as well)
other then that they are standard issue pcs where the motherboards are manufactured by FoxxConn--same people who build dell, hp, etcs motherboards......
think different??? Not really!
you can even run OSX on a regular PC now! LOLz. :p
