said earlier this week that it has started receiving orders for its new operating system called Leopard, which will run on Apple Mac PCs and Notebooks. After a four month delay due to resources being allocated to the iPhone, Apple is set to go live with the software on October 26th; it will cost US$129 for a single user license.

Apple, Inc.’s shares were at an all time high yesterday, selling for about US$173 per share. The general consensus of “Buy” in the market must be making investors happy.

· Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor
· 512MB of memory
· DVD drive for installation
· 9GB of available disk space
· Some features require a compatible Internet Service Provider; fees may apply.
· Some features require Apple's .Mac service; fees apply.
