Snow Leopard has been out for a few days now, and the reviewers have been hard at work. On its release I posted my initial impressions and review of the OS, many of which confirmed the expectations I had before installing Snow Leopard. Recently, there have been a couple of reviews that outline the changes in Snow Leopard, and what to expect from both a user standpoint and from a technical standpoint.

The Technica(l) review.

Ars Technica has always been a great resource for very technical approaches to understanding the latest computer technologies. While their reviews can be very long, they cover many topics in-depth. If you are looking for a full look at the benefits of the technologies Apple has brought to the table in Snow Leopard (OpenCL, Grand Central, QuickTime X, etc), the review at Ars Technica is the place to go for an almost an informative albeit almost exhaustive look at Snow Leopard's underpinnings.

The CNET approach.

CNET has a video review of Snow Leopard, which may be more appealing to the average user. Initially released on Friday by CNET editor Jason Parker, the video covers the basics of Snow Leopard and what it brings to people upgrading from Leopard or Tiger. Watch the video here:
