    Search around everywhere and couldn't find an answer so hopefullly all you wizards on MacRumours can help me.

    I'm trying to get a copy of Ilife 11 to upgrade from my ilife 09. Someone is selling a ilife 11 upgraded dvd for cheap. Is this the same as the install dvd or is it different?

    Thanks

    If it’s the retail copy, it’s the same thing.

    There was never an "upgrade" DVD. Only retail.

    Hmm. He took a picture for me and where it normally says install DVD on the retail packages I have seen it says upgrade DVD. He is worried it's not the same thing and doesn't want to sell me an unusable install DVD.

    I am sitting with the retail package of iLife '11 in front of me now and no where on the package does it say upgrade.

    MC623Z/A ILIFE 11 RETAIL

    This is the product number and name that should be on the packaging.

    Yeah that is my worry. It says it on the actual DVD. On your dvd where it says install dvd his says upgrade dvd. I haven't ever seen one that says that before. Here is the DVD:

    IIRC, before the App Store, Apple would offer "upgrade DVDs" to people who bought new Macs with a certain period after Mac OS X or iLife was updated.

    i.e. the new Mac they bought came preinstalled with the old version, and Apple would either ship them an upgrade DVD, or open the box and actually stick them in for the them when their Mac shipped.
