You can get a single-user license for just $29 and a Family pack license (install on up to 5 Mac’s within the same household) for just $49. One should note though, these are Leopard upgrades, so if you don’t already have Leopard, I don’t think they will work – I wonder what the prices are then? Probably $129 as they usually charge for a full single user license.
In addition to the single user and family pack licenses, you can also get a Server version for $499 or the new Mac Box Set for just $169 which includes Snow Leopard, iLife ’09 and iWork ’09.

And much, much more, you can read about here: Mac OS X Snow Leopard at Apple.
Here in Malta it’s still unknown when Snow Leopard becomes available. The authorized dealer (SG Solutions, iCentre) is trying their best to be able to have it by the release date, but I seriously doubt we will see it in Malta until at least one week later than that, maybe even more.
Not that I’m unhappy with Leopard, not at all, but I’m really looking forward to installing Snow Leopard on my Macs and see just how much faster it is – and the new QuickTime X player looks really cool too.
