I bought a Mac Mini yesterday. It's my first Mac. So far I am pretty impressed having used nothing Windows boxes in the past. However, I do have one question. Does iLife '05 come preinstalled now? I thought the Mac Mini comes with the iLife '05 CD and it has to be manually installed. Mine looks like it's been factory installed. Did anyone else's Mac Mini's come with iLife '05 installed?

Mine came installed, and I bought my Mini quite a while ago.

I think only the early Minis came with iLife disc, rather than preinstalled.

iLife is pre-installed, but there should also be a green iLife CD in the box too!

I too only received 2 discs (Mac OS9 and X) and no green iLife disc. Sad

My Mini had iLife preinstalled, and didn't come with an iLife disc.

iLife can be found on the gray restore disc that comes with the Mini. I'm pretty confident of that because I just used it to reinstall iLife after doing a clean install of Tiger!

I think the original batch of minis came with the iLife 05 DVD and it even had to be installed. Now I think the mini comes pre-installed with and no longer incude the DVD.

The mini we got today did not have the disk. BUt it was shipped by a clilnet so one cant be sure.

However I looked at the original disk envelope- its marked:
