    Not all Macs come with it, some come with Quicken etc. :)

    The "pro" Macs don't have it. Only the "consumer" Macs.

    That's strange...

    I love Comic Life. A great program that lets anyone become creative.

    I've heard of Mac Pros coming without Comic Life, but with Graphic Converter instead.

    WEIRD...

    My SR MBP came with Comic life. My HD failed last week, and I took it to an apple store... got it back and no Comic Life. Or even iPhoto, or a lot of other stuff.

    But I've got a .dmg image they recovered from the old hard drive, so reinstalling that stuff was a simple drag and drop from the old Applications folder to the new one.

    This is interesting that some people do not have Comic Life in their MBPs.
    I doubt that Apple intentionally decides that some computers will have Comic Life, where as some will have something else... that would be just bad.

    By the way, I have a SR MBP, and I have Comic Life- it came preinstalled.

    explanation

    You didn't get iPhoto because iLife is not a part of the standard OS install. Only iTunes comes for free.

    Dude

    And you're reading that from the back of the Retail version of an OS X install?

    If you have a legitimate Mac, Apple assumes you have the correct restore discs, which you can use to install iLife.

    My macbook pro is a santa rosa, and I had comic life on it, though it is a week 30.

    I think I know what happened. I got my new iMac on August 7th, it didn't have Comic Life on it. My guess is that when they introduced the new iMacs and Mac Minis, they discontinued putting Comic Life into all consumer computers.

    My SR MBP came with comic life on it.

    I'd imagine that the hard drive that came back without iLife came like that because they knew you had the install discs that came with the computer..?
