The Snow Leopard upgrade may cost $39, but some Mac users are finding costs for upgrading or replacing incompatible apps to be significantly more. Now that you've taken the upgrade plunge, we're wondering how much Snow Leopard really cost you.
The EveryJoe blog posts about the true costs of one user's experience, finding that apps like 1Password and Adobe Photoshop CS3 are kinda/sorta working, but virtualization software Parallels was a definite upgrade necessity, costing about $US40 with promotion pricing. Juan Magdaraog pegs his total Snow Leopard software costs at $US78, noting that he'll eventually need to jump to PhotoShop CS4, which carries a far heftier price tag.
