    Does anyone know if iLife '11 comes with Lion or do you need to download the iLife apps separately from the App Store (I still have iLife '09)? I ask because the OSX install discs came with iLife in the past.

    I am also debating whether or not to get a magic trackpad as it seems that swiping and gestures are a big part of Lion (I am used to the mouse). Anyone love or hate the trackpad?

    ilife is not included on the Lion download as far as I can tell.

    Apple stopped bundling iLife with Mac OS X clear back in the Panther days. Usually you would have to buy a box, or it would come with your computer.

    so..I feel stupid now..but I have iLife '09 on my MBP with 10.6.8

    When I upgrade to Lion, can I keep using my iLife or will I be forced to buy iLife '11?

    You should be able to keep using your existing iLife without any major issues.

    I only used the trackpad for about a week, but I wasn't a big fan -- I never found a way to set it up comfortably. It worked great for gestures, but having it off to the right of the keyboard (like a mouse) and using for moving the mouse never felt right for me. Others I work with *love* it though. :)

    I like the trackpad and after a few days it actually grows on you and becomes more simple to use than the mouse. I have been using it for about 6 months now and whenever Lion comes out with the "gestures" feature, it will make the Mac even better.
