    I am a newbie and i just bought my first mac ever!!! I was just curious. I did not get ilife 05 cd with my powerbook purchase. Do i have to go buy ilife 05 from the store? Sorry if this has been discussed earlier, i couldnt find it

    If it didn't come preloaded, then you can get the discs from Apple for $10 under the "up to date" program.

    Personally, since iLife was released some time ago, it should have been included and I would go to teh store and demand a free copy.

    Now, if what you're asking is "why didn't I get the disks in addition to the preloaded copy" well, that's a copy-protection scheme I guess, and just the way it works.

    is it installed? If so it'll be on the software DVD(s) you got with your PB.

    iLife '05 should be installed on your Mac and be on the install disks you received with it, unless I'm somehow mistaken. But you shouldn't have a specific iLife '05 disk.

    The restore CDs will have your copy of iLife, if you install a newer version of OS X you can put your copy on the new install by chucking the first restore CD in and choosing install bundled apps.

    The second disk has additional applications that came with your PowerBook on it, including iLife. You can install these things using the Software Restore feature on your restore discs if you ever need to.
