    Just brought a second Mac Mini and notice that there was no iLife 05 in the box. Also that the OS was already upgrade to 10.3.8.

    Should I contact Apple about the missing CD?

    yep -- it should be there. but since the latest version of osx is installed, check to see if iLife '05 isnt already installed. seems like they should be shipping it already installed by now.

    since its up to date (10.3.8) it most likely includes iLife '05... therefore, iLife '05 may very well be on the CDs the Mac mini comes with, not on a seperate CD.

    Good to know. I wonder if this held up production at all and maybe they'll start shipping them sooner now... just wishful thinking. According to the order status page I've still got 2 weeks left to go...

    What's odd is if you look up Tuned MP5T's other posts it looks like he got a BTO shipped in under a day and with iLife 05 pre-installed!... I wish I could get that kind of service.

    How did you get a BTO at an Apple store? Do they do it in larger metro areas?

    I'm a bit jealous I've been waiting for a whole two weeks already for the same setup. I keep on checking my e-mail for hopeful "it's been shipped" messages.

    They have a Mac Mini called the Ulimate or Ultimo and it comes with everything. Don't know about them only being available at larger metro areas.

    At the Mall of America Apple store (in Bloomington, MN a suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul) there's no such package as Ulimate or Ultimo... Lucky SOHO consumers...
