    If you look in the store. You can order iWork09 (on its own) for delivery in 24hrs, however iLife09 says "January". So iLife is delayed a little right?

    But they advertise on the site that "All new macs come with iLife09" so even thought you can't get the boxed version right now I can order a Mac right now and get it?

    Thanks for reading. I've been waiting to get the 15 MBP but couldn't before Macworld, and now I don't want to miss out on getting iLife09 and having to pay later.

    Nope

    It wont be installed on a mac if you buy it today but... this is off of apples website

    iLife Up-to-Date program.

    iLife '09, a significant upgrade to Apple's award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications, features major new versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand and includes iWeb and iDVD.

    If you buy a qualifying Mac between January 6, 2009, and March 28, 2009, and it does not include iLife '09, you're eligible to receive iLife '09 for just $9.95 plus tax.

    Thanks for the response. That sucks a bit. People are going to buy it having read the site.
    I have to decide if I can wait. I think the answer is no.

    If you don't want to pay that $10, you could wait a week or two and you would have a very high chance that you would be getting iLife 09 then... I'm guessing most would be shipping now with iLife 09.

    I might be wishful thinking, but the title of the page says "iLife '09 Hardware up to date program." Does this mean the hardware, NVIDIA chipsets, etc., might be a possibility when iLife comes installed with the new iMac's?

    Shouldn't they have used the word Software instead? Not unless Apple has something up their sleeves
