Just bought an iMac (for Christmas) that came with iLife '08 and we bought iWork '08 as well...

From what I hear '09 versions of both have just been announced...

What are the chances for free (or possibly discounted) updates?

Thanks and regards,
Scott

I think in the keynote there was a lower price for an upgrade version. No idea if there would be a discount to users that have purchased 08 a few weeks ago.

iWeb and iGarageBand are the new application additions for iLife '09, correct? meaning, iLife '08 didn't include those applications... the others are new versions of apps that were present in iLife '08..

i chatted with an Apple rep on the Apple store...

nothing other than the $79 upgrade for situations like this.. have software that is less than a month old, installed for less than 2 weeks and still have to pay to get a new version of the software...

truly revealing myself as an Mac newbie....

the 2 applications are already there... and i even called one by the wrong name... throwing the "i" around to much for my own good...

at least i can say that the iMac is at home so i couldn't check before posting...

curiosity does indeed kill the cat... or they wouldn't have that saying now would they... :laugh2:

That's why when you know Macworld is coming soon, you wait to see what they have that is new, so you can hold off a bit longer on your purchase, like I did. But I think the upgrade pricing isn't too painful, so go for it. :cool:

iAntivirus has a free version you can download at cnet.com. Why be unprotected when you can protect yourself for free? Mark

ClamX AV is also free.
