    Looking at the UK Apple site, the cost is £25 Vs $29 for a single licence - and £39 Vs $49 for a five licence pack. Using a current exchange rate and including VAT at 15%, the US version works out far better value. I know not why.

    I am in the US in a few weeks time, is there any good reason why I should not buy it there? Is there any region issues?

    Thanks for the reply - but the thread you refer to is not entirely appropriate to my questions. I was not whinging about the price, just asking for clarity on if there was a good reason that I could not use a US version with my UK purchased Macs.

    It may not be a lot of extra cash, but I am visiting Delaware (Tax Free shopping) in the next couple of weeks and I am not likely to update my kit before I go. No impact unless it doesn't work, hence my question.

    I think you should be able to buy it in the US.

    You shouldn't have any trouble.

    I bought iLife 04 in Canada on a Ski trip and it all worked just fine.
