I got my brand new MacBook Pro a few days ago upgrading from my MacBook. My new MacBook Pro came with OS X Lion and iLife '11 pre installed on it. My MacBook has the other iLife with Snow Leopard. My old MacBook came with iWeb and iDvd. I was just wondering if this was normal or not. Thanks for the help. :apple:

I originally had the complaint about iDVD not being included.

We all deducted that Apple was slowly trying to kill off the iWeb and iDVD. iDVD hasn't had a change since iLife 08 except for bug fixes. I don't think many people used iWeb either.

Unfortunately, you'll need access to an iLife 11 (or even iLife 09 or even just 08 since the only differences between the versions included are small bug fixes in the case of iDVD.) install disc to get iDVD and iWeb. I still think it's false advertising when Apple says "All new Macs come with iLife" when parts of iLife are missing.

UPDATE!

I was talking to the people at the Genius Bar about iDVD (I was there for my iPod Touch) and they said that if you make an appointment and bring in your computer, they will try to install iDVD at no charge (if you're within a warranty). Just to let you know.
