    We all know that iLife has now been released, however, if you click buy now, it clearly states that it is shipping with 08.
    1. When do you think Apple will start shipping macs with 09
    2. When do you think 3rd party shops will start shipping macs with 09
    3. If I buy from a 3rd party shop, with an employee's discount, do I still get the upgrade deal (heard it was only for full paying)
    Thanks

    End of Feb, already lots of threads on this

    and for point 3, you'll have to pay the $10 upgrade.

    Wrong, once again.
    Apple are now including iLife '09 drop-in discs on Macs they are shipping, including refurbs.

    The fine print on http://www.apple.com/ilife/uptodate/ in the Terms and Conditions section indicates that after March 28th there will not be a need for the up-to-date program.

    So you ordered it direct from Apple on or after Tuesday this week, which has now been delivered to you, and it didn't come with a drop-in iLife '09 DVD? I'm prepared to believe you mate but frankly you have a rep for not backing up what you post on here.

    Order a Mac now from Apple and it will come with iLife '09. The up-to-date program is to cover Macs sitting in dealer stock.

    No i ordered it last Sunday, but you said
    "Apple are now including iLife '09 drop-in discs on Macs they are shipping"

    Which wasnt completely correct.
    Seems its not me who needs to back up what theyre saying.

    But when you bought it, it wasn't yet shipping. They would be doing it now (and the past couple of days) but when you ordered it, the date had not been announced yet.

    What exactly don't you understand by the word "now"? :rolleyes:
    I'll give you a clue: "now" does not mean "last Sunday when kastenbrust ordered a Mac Pro" :p

    Has anyone here purchased a mac in the last 2 days at an apple store? If yes, did ilife09 come preloaded or was a disk included?
