Forgive me if this old news, or standard practice, but I was looking through the Apple Refurb store and it very clearly, in bold states that iLife '05 is included with the refurb iMacs, at least.

My understanding was that refurb machines came with whatever software originally shipped with the computer, so in this case iLife '04... Was I wrong? This is great news though, I just bought one of these, it should be here eventually, and one of my main concerns with getting a refurb was having to shell out $60 for an edu copy of '05 if I decided that I wanted the upgrade, which would eat up most of the savings on a refurb.

Anyways, I thought that was pretty spify, and wanted to share... sorry again if this is old news...

The link is no longer valid because your session ended, but I did see in the URL that it was from the education store which may have different included software than the main store. (Also keep in mind that refurbs are *not* eligible for the Up-To-Date program, so if you don't get '05 with the machine you will have to pay full price.)
