Think Apple will move it up to $149? Or how about to $99?

The chances of them moving it up to $149 are slim. It would be most likely to stay at $129.

As it is, people are complaining enough that $129 is "too much" because there are "no new features." $149 would be foolish.

If Snow Leopard delivers on its promise to be a huge speed boost as well as improving on already existing frameworks and technologies, then it's worth the $129 alone.

Hopefully it won't go up considering the state of the economy - fortunately for me I got Tiger for free from my school, hopefully Snow Leopard comes out in time for me to get a similar deal

Personally I'm hoping they drop the price on this one to encourage rapid adoption. There's stuff I want to be able to use, and I can't do that without dropping Leopard support.

If they continue to leave it at $129 that's sort of a discount. Everything else goes up, except stocks and oil right now...
Ya gotta applaud those bunnies for sacrificing their hearing just so some guy in Yonkers can have better TV reception.

Now that's weird logic, its like the commericals I see at walmart and home depot proclaiming that they've cut prices but every time I go in there my wallet is even lighter

I'm sure Apple will keep the 129 price and I'm sure people will be whining and complaining that its too much for what you're getting. Heck when ever Apple does anything people whine and complain so SL won't be any different.
