    Well, I searched around and couldn't find anything, so here we go! It's a simple question, are you going to buy iLife 07 or not? I know I will, because I do a lot of work in iPhoto and Garageband, so it will be nice to have the latest version of all of those. Plus I get the education discount so I get it for cheaper. What about you?

    Unless there's some sort of significant new functionality in it that I find really useful -- no.

    Well hey, we may get a spreadsheet application if the rumors are true. That could come in handy.

    None of the above: I want to see the features before I decide...

    That would be in iWork, I think... ;)

    Well that would be a part of iWork, which I do plan to buy, with or without "Numbers".

    Nope.

    I'm not making any major purchases this year, my plans for 2007 means that every penny counts.

    However, when I come back, sometime in 2008, I'll be buying a new iMac or MacBook pre-installed with Leopard, iLife '08 and whatever other goodies Apple decide to include. :)

    I'll buy iWork 07 just for Kenyote 4 unless Apple brings nothing new to the table.

    OT, but I've been using the trial version of iWork '06 for a while and really like it. Especially Keynote. I've got high hopes for '07. :)

    I hate iPhot right now. Some of my family photos are randomly disappearing.:eek:

    (Don't get me wrong, all the original versions are still in the "Originals" folder, but they come up with that grey exclamation mark when trying to view them in my Library.

    At $79, $99 for the family package, for me this is a no-brainer. Besides, I want to continue support for the R&D effort.

    I will be buying it as long as the new features warrant it, but it won't be straight away as I am broke.

    Yep. I've only got '05 at the moment, so it'll be worth it for me just for all the extra themes, effects, etc. I tend to use iDVD quite a bit, and the update to Garageband also makes it worthwhile.

    I'm use the pro apps for everything

    imove- final cut
    garage band- soundtrack
    iPhoto-apeture

    etc. etc. etc.

    if those aren't enough reasons to buy pro apps over iLife, i don't know what is!

    Not unless it comes packaged with a dual quadcore Mac Pro. This would mean that I actually found a high paying job, so No.

    I'll probably buy it...the family pack for the family network o'Macs.

    Hopefully that will be compatible for both intel & non-intel macs...that's what I currently have.

    I use it mostly for iphoto cataloging stuff along with iphoto library manager. I suppose I could get Apeture for that instead. I always say I'll do more iDVD and iMovie work with slideshows, but that never seems to happen.

    I'm tired of buying iLife.

    For example:

    GarageBand: Don't need it... I use Logic Express 7
    iPhoto: I use it but, only for organizing my Photos, need to save up for Aperture
    iDVD: Never use it
    iMovie: Use it once in a while, I could stick with the current version
    iTunes: Usually free
    iWeb: I do all of my web coding in TextEdit

    Since I've got iLife '05, I'll probably buy the '07 version, along with iWork.

    I'm not sure iWeb is worth much to me but an updated iDVD might be.

    Yes, unless the new features are extremely disappointing.
