Snow Leopard Outsells Tiger and Leopard Combined

Snow Leopard Outsells Tiger and Leopard Combined

Sales of Mac OS X Snow Leopard have outsold those of Tiger and Leopard combined, according to market research firm NPD.

The Loop has learned that Snow Leopard sales in the first two weeks have “far exceeded” those of Tiger and Leopard. NPD says Snow Leopard sales were more than twice that of Leopard and almost four times higher than Tiger.

Sales declined about 25 percent after the first week for Snow Leopard; however, the previous two operating systems saw a 60 percent decrease by the same time period.

“Even though some considered Snow Leopard to be less feature-focused than the releases of Leopard or Tiger, the ease of upgrading to Snow Leopard and the affordable pricing made it a win-win for Apple computer owners — thus helping to push sales to record numbers” said Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at NPD.

Its likely that the low price of Snow Leopard has drastically reduced the number of downloads and also increase the number of people interested in upgrading.

Hmmm... wonder why? Oh yeah, maybe because its $90 less than what Tiger and Leopard cost when they were originally released! I know it was allot easier for me to buy a $30 disc versus $119
