    As the title states, I'm looking at a refurbished macbook air, and want to know if I still qualify for the discounted iLife '09 suite if I purchase it. Thanks.

    Does it come preloaded or with a disk?

    Had to order a disk. Wait a couple of days and it will probably come with a disc. I don't know if they will redo the restore discs for iLife.

    Awesome! Thanks RayK. I think that just helped me decide on getting it. Hopefully soon I'll be the proud owner of my very first Mac!

    Heh anytime. I sure hope you like it. Jljaje sure you're ok with the fact it doesn't stream hd flash video so well. Doesn't bother me at all but if that's your thing you miut wanna look at a rev b or a regular macbook. Enjoy.

    They probably won't redo the restore disk. You'll end up with a retail copy of the iLife '09 disk. Still a great deal...

    I don't think anyone has iLife '09 yet. I'll post as soon as I try it.

    anyone receive theirs yet? It was very easy to order after I bought my refurb MBA. Wondering if it's just a disc or the retail package. Model number is different from the retail $79 version.

    I bought an MBA here in Japan and they gave me all of the paperwork for the update, but it's in Japanese which I can't read all of...can I just go through the US update program?

    lets hope so. It'll be torture to have to wait 2-3 wks when everyone else will be receiving theirs. :)

    Mine is coming on the 3rd of February but I couldn't wait any longer. The bookstore in my college had them in today and with the student discount, I bought mine for $59 :).
    I'll probably sell the one I got for 9.99

    Ohhhh!!! I wonder if others who ordered after a certain date got it in the box too. I'll find out tomorrow when mine arrives. Maybe I can cancel my $10 order.
