    Hey guys,

    Don't flame me or anything, but is this update a free update? I can't picture updating the iLife suite every year for $70-100.


    Thanks.

    It's not, and it most likely never will be. You don't have to update if you don't want to though.

    Nobody knows yet, but my guess is that it will NOT be free, just like previous iLife and iWork updates. Some rumors even place it bundled with Leopard. We'll just have to wait and see, I suppose.

    No, it's unlikely that it will be free but's not exactly expensive considering all that you get in the package. A lot of work goes into it.

    I didn't buy iLife '06 but I'll probably buy this newer version.

    Every version of Office is upwards of $200.... (of course it is a more complete suite)

    iLife 07 will be $79 or so. It's like photoshop elements, every ~year its $89.

    The only hope is that they give you some rebate if you buy Leopard, iLife and iWork together.

    Definitely, I'd like to see iWork included too, if it had OpenXML support and a spreadsheet I could see that happening (unless they wanna be best buddies with MS.)

    Well hopefully there will be some worthwhile upgrades to make the investment worth it.

    Where is iLife '07??
    Not until Leopard?
    Will it even be compatible with tiger?
    I'm buying iLife '06, screw it.:p

    I wish they'd offer iLife a la carte. I use almost all of iLife, but my wife only uses iPhoto. I bet they could sell each app for $20 or so and still have great all around sales.

    I'll definitely be picking up iLife 07 and Leapord.

    64 bit support, baby. :)
