    Can you upgrade from Tiger to Snow Leopard?

    i'm not sure if its possible, but i've had issues with upgrades in general (even from 10.5 to 10.6), so i'd suggest a clean install of SL. back up her drive, fresh install of SL, then migrate.

    that was quicker than expected. the higher res model is BTO only, so it won't be showing up on amazon. (if i'm wrong let me know, because i already ordered a base 15" w/ higher res...wouldn't mind getting tax back)
