Mac OS X Leopard will be on the prowl soon

The Mac rumor sites say Leopard is coming out at the end this month. If you're ready to buy a Mac, you should wait until this cat is out of the bag before you make that big purchase.

Have you been thinking about buying a new Mac? Have the sleek new iMacs won you over? Maybe you're thinking about one of the MacBooks? Well, this was brought up yesterday by our very own Tom Krazit at CNET, but I think it's worth mentioning here: don't pull the trigger on that purchase just yet!

According to Mac rumor sites, Apple will announce the release of Mac OS X Leopard on October 26. There's no confirmation from Apple--there never is--but with last week's news of a mostly complete release candidate for Leopard, it's a pretty good bet that what the rumor sites are hearing is true. Though you might be chomping at the bit to get a new iMac, you'll be much happier if you wait and get Leopard preloaded on your machine. You also won't be kicking yourself for having to spend an additional $150 to get it.
