    I thought that iLife came installed on the rMBP. I had to wipe and restore my rMBP beacuse of a migration problem when I first got my rMBP. I called appl and one sevice tech told me it did come with it that it would show up in Mac app store as purched. But mine did not show up I called back and the other Tech guy told me it does not come preinstalled. Did your rMBP come with iLife?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Check in the App store. If you had them on a previous machine you may be able to download from there. It shows on my Apple ID, I guess from my old MacBook Air or Mini

    Yes, you have to visit the store first before it will register then you can download like any other purchase

    I hope this is true as I don't want it on my rMBP as I don't use and it would just take up space.

    If you had it on your machine you could just remove it, and it's relatively insignificant compared to the total amount of space on your drive anyways...

    I'm signed in on the app store it shows no purchases. So some have it and some don't have it. I wonder what the deal is.

    Is it just garage band, iPhoto and iMovie?

    They were already on mine, updates waiting in the app store.

    I don't think pages / numbers are included in iLife are they? (They show as pay for downloads on my machine)

    Pages and Numbers are iWork, not iLife.

    They should be in the app store for you, I've noticed this on a few macs I've set up recently, iLife wasn't found on some, but WERE on others... It's about 50/50 with the 10 or so I've set up in the last week.

    The ones that didn't have it pre installed had the apps waiting for them In the app store after registering.

    You failed to answer the OP's question correctly. In fact, you answered it incorrectly. = Fail.

    Couldn't care less whether you would use it or not.

    Mine came with it preinstalled, and the app store sees they are installed.

    iPhoto and garageband were on my rMBP. I say were (at least for garageband) because I deleted it.

    After I registered my rMBA, I went to the Puchased page of the App Store where it showed the iLife apps, and there was an "Accept" button to the right. When I clicked "Accept", the apps were downloaded and installed.

    iLife is installed on all new Mac`s you need to sign into the App`s on the initial system start up, validate iLife it`s then available indefinitely. If you erase your system before logging into the App`s store, iLife will not be available and you will need to contact Apple directly.

    That must be what happened I never got past the migration screen and had to erase and do a full restore to get to even see my rMBP fully booted.
