Apple Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard

CNET
20 July 2009
  • Summary: Intel Mac users will like Snow Leopard's smartly designed interface enhancements, and its Exchange support is a must-have (especially with Outlook for Mac on the way). With a ton of technological improvements, Snow Leopard is worth the $29 upgrade fee.
  • Pros: Interface enhancements like Expose in the Dock and better file and folder viewing in Stacks make finding apps and files much easier. A completely overhauled QuickTime X now sports a cleaner interface and recording tools. The much-anticipated Exchange support across Mail, the Address Book, and iCal is huge for those who take their Macs to work.
  • Cons: Snow Leopard works with Intel Macs only; PowerPC users are out of luck; requires $29 upgrade fee.

Apple Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

TechRadar UK
3 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Apple's happily admitted from day one that Snow Leopard was to be a better Leopard, building on the foundations of Mac OS X 10.5. The thinking was to make things better, faster, easier - an upgrade about refinement rather than revolution.

Apple Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

TechRadar UK
5 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Most people who own a Mac will buy external storage at some stage. Leopard gives you a good reason because you’ll need one if you want to run Time Machine, for instance. Perhaps your primary drive is filling up or you want to get into the habit of saving material to an external drive. Whatever your reasons, having a reliable external drive to hand is always useful.

Expert Review

MadTech
1 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Ainda com o nome "Tiger", não é desta que temos o "Leopard" nos Mac. Este update vem a responder aos problemas que foram encontrados no último mês: - Problemas na impressão de certos documentos com caractéres Coreanos ou Chineses, que provocavam erros no próprio sistema operativo. - Sincronização melhorada com os novos iPod's. - Na campo de redes, já não é necessário reiniciar o pc quando ligamo-nos a uma rede Comcast.
