Let me get this straight... Apple wants me to buy iLife TWICE just to get iDVD?

    So, I bought a brand new MacBook Pro a month ago.

    Apple advertises that it comes with iLife 2011.

    But what Apple DOESN'T tell you is that it won't come with iDVD, even though the boxed copy of iLife 2011 includes iDVD.

    So, if I make a movie in iMovie, and want to burn it to DVD, there's the option to click on exporting it to iDVD.

    ...except there is no iDVD on my computer, even though I have iLife 2011.

    And the only way to get iDVD is by buying iLife from the store. So, I'd be paying for iLife twice.

    How is this fair?

    "Making your own DVDs has never been easier!"

    Really, Apple? Tell me how exactly I'm supposed to do that.

    I'll need to check this when I get home. If this is the case though, that's really cheap on Apple's part. :eek:

    A replacement disc then I guess, or as much as I hate suggesting it... download it from a torrent...
