New Snow Leopard OS X brings a smaller, faster Mac experience in September

Apple ran through a boatload of details of their upcoming Snow Leopard OS today, including the great news that upgrading to it will cost a mere $29 for current Mac users when it arrives in September.

Snow Leopard is going to look pretty similar to what you're used to, but it's been completely rewritten for speed upgrades all across the board. From installation, which is 45% faster and takes up 6GB less space, to opening files and surfing the web, it should make computing much zippier, especially if you have a 64-bit, multi-core processor. Look for it in September for the aforementioned cheapo upgrade price of $29.
