Is 10.6 Spotlight still really clunky on a single-core CPU? It's pretty bad in Leopard on a single-core, whether it be a PowerPC, or a Core2Duo with one core disabled.

Nope. Still waiting for it to go RTM.. From what I've read about Snow Leopard, it should run circles around Leopard on our machines. I'm really looking forward to it.

I saw it could be release before Q2. :ugeek:

It should run faster then Leopard on the mini since it's optimized for x86.

or because apple has shown it as a faster, lighter, smaller version of leopard.

How does Apple usually handle pricing for upgrades? I'm relatively new to the apple scene.
