Most reviews of Macs mention iLife as an added value when comparing it to the cost of PCs but how many people actually use it? Let's look at the individual apps. GarageBand - I delete this every time I get a mac. Most people I know don't create their own music and pros use more advanced apps. I also don't play any musical instruments so there is a 0% chance I would use it. iWeb - Personally, I've never had the need to create a website/blog and if I did, I'd probably pay a professional to do it. I still keep this on the 1% chance I would use it. iMovie/iDVD - I'm a filmmaker so I use Final Cut/DVD studio for professional films. Outside of work, I've never shot a home movie nor made a DVD, though this is probably more useful than the apps above. iPhoto - This is probably the most used app of the iLife suite. Everybody has photos. For me however, it's still unnecessary. Most of the time, I just use preview to browse my photo library. Don't really have the time or desire to organize and edit my photos. Personally, I would prefer iWork to come bundled with new Macs. Pages is useful for almost everybody. Who hasn't done word processing either for work, school, creative writing, or just writing a simple letter? Most people have used a spreadsheet app for work/college and a lot have given a presentation. I guess iWork just seems more productive and iLife is all about goofing around with all your media. I'd just like to get a sense of how many people here take advantage of the iLife suite.
