    Just looked at ordering Monster Box. It's $230 for the family pack.

    BUT, iLife family pack is $99; iWork family pack is $99. Why $30 extra to get them bundled?

    It includes Leopard but we all have that. What a joke!

    Not everyone has Leopard. What's the problem? :confused:

    It's a really great price too.
    Think about it: It's like Microsoft offering Windows Vista, Microsoft Office and an iLife equivalent for £150!

    I think the bundle pack is more about getting Leopard out to everyone. It is a great price to get all 3 together if you don't have any of them.

    Can you just sell Leopard and keep the others?

    If they did it wouldn't be for a looong time. 10.5 has been out for over a year. They're trying to tempt the 10.4 stragglers.

    Not everyone has Leopard. Or, they only have it on one computer and own several. This allows the purchase of five licenses of Leopard, iLife and Iwork for $230. The Leopard Family Pack alone is $199. Look at it this way - that's $30 for iLife and iWork licenses when you upgrade your operating system.

    I consider this one of the best deals out there in order to ensure that your licensing situation is in compliance in a household with multiple Macs.

    It is actually a saving for all the Tiger users who want to upgrade to Leopard and not pay the $129/199 price.

    Here's hoping they come up with a similar package when Snow Leopard gets released.
