    so im getting a new pro in two weeks to replace the clunker G4 im on now, im getting it at best buy because of the financing they have there over the apple store. i doubt their systems will have ilife '09 so do i get a upgrade disc from apple? i dont know how there upgrades work because ive only bought one mac and that was 3.5 years ago.

    I doubt it would be included in a box at a retail store. I don't think they've had enough time for those to clear from inventory and new ones brought in.

    But, I wonder if you ordered a build to order from Apple if iLife 09 would be included on the Leopard dvd.

    iLife 09 on new mac book pro

    I have iLife 09 on my mac book pro

    It works great

    If you’ve purchased a qualifying computer on or after January 6, 2009, that does not include iLife ’09, you can upgrade to iLife ’09 for US$9.95 plus tax.*

    iLife pre-installed by online Apple store

    I believe Apple will be pre-installing iLife on kit ordered directly through the Apple online store. If it's not pre-installed, you can order it through the "Up-to-date" upgrade program for roughly the cost of postage.

    It's been released already so even if the computer u ordered doesn't have iLife 09 preinstalled, you should be able to find the iLife 09 Up-to-date Disc inside your MacBook box. (That's what happened to me with Leopard last year)

    i bought a new pro from last week. it came with a iLife 09 dvd in the box. YMMV, you can also do the $10 upgrade from if you dont get it.

    True, it will have the disc in the box, you'll just have to install it yourself.

    I also got the iLife 09 dvd in the box. My MBP was purchased 4 days ago. Wasn't pre-installed but they do include it.
