I just finished doing a couple of hardware upgrades for someone who wanted to put MacOS 10.5.7 on their macbook (I can't remember the exact model but it's not important). We didn't do any direct data migration from the old hard drive or upgrade; this was a vanilla install from a standalone copy of 10.5.7. Everything went fine. However, they're trying to find apps that are a part of the iLife suite and it doesn't appear to them that they were included with the OS install. Is this to be expected? Is there any way they can download iLife for that version of MacOS without having to upgrade to Lion?

If this installation was via a 10.5.7 OS install DVD...then that is exactly correct...iLife apps are not part of an OS install.

Possibly...but you need at last OS 10.6.6 installed on a computer to have access to the Mac App Store (you don't need Lion for the Mac App Store).

Or, if you (or the customer) want the iLife apps...you probably need to purchase an older version of an iLife DVD from Amazon or e-Bay...and make sure you get a version of iLife that is compatible with OS 10.5.7.

p.s. FYI...iLife '11 (the lastest version) is NOT compatible with OS 10.5.7. iLife '11 requires at least OS 10.6.3. I believe iLife '09 is the newest version compatible with 10.5.7.
