    Hi guys,

    I own a macbook that comes preinstalled with iLife'08 and have been thinking of upgrading to iLife'09 for a while now. But then my sister wants a new macbook which will come preinstalled with iLife'09. I'm thinking I could borrow one of her CDs and install iLife09 on my machine.

    Will I be able to do that?

    Not to mention it's against the EULA to install on another computer. If you want iLife 09, buy it.
