    How do you install iLife? SL machines came with grey disks for iLife but now they don't. So, if you do a fresh install, how do you get your free iLife in there?

    I think he's saying the newer computers don't come with the applications disk.

    Cheers,

    The details are buried in Apple’s Knowledge Base Article #HT4718. Here’s a recap.

    1. After you’ve reinstalled Lion, restart the Mac
    2. Double-click the App Store in the Dock or select Apple Menu -> App Store.
    3. Authenticate with your Apple ID and password.
    4. Select the “Purchases” tab.
    5. You should see the iLife suite appear in the “Accept” section. You can download it free of charge.
