    I've just ordered a refurbished iMac. On the Apple site it says it comes with iLife 08 (as all iMac's do currently)...

    Will I be able to use the offer to upgrade to iLife 09 ? or doesn't this apply to refurbished products ?

    Anyone Know ?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Thanks - but what I don't understand is if this also applies to refurbished products ?

    Yes!

    Hey,
    I called on Friday wondering the same thing. It's just like purchasing a new imac. You have to pay the 10$ upgrade in order to get Ilife 2009.
    The only thing I don't like about getting a refurb is you can't pick out options like the Wireless keyboard for $30 extra or a larger HD.. I just joined this forum so I could reply to your question so please pat me on the back and send balloons:)

    Completely wrong. iLife '09 has been announced but not released. You can't buy it yet. You can purchase it later this month (late January) for $99, but in your case, the upgrade is all you need ($9).

    All, if you buy your Mac after iLife starts shipping, you will get it free. If you buy it prior to the product shipping, you must pay for the $10 upgrade. Refurbished Macs will go through the same "Formating" as new Macs (the process of imaging the Hard Drive).

    Just for clarity for folks ordering it, the single user pack is $79 while the family pack is $99.

    I just noticed that my preorder from Apple directly has changed the shipping date from the generic "January" and now shows that it will ship February 2nd.
