Hi,

I am thinking on getting an iMac for my xmas and i currently study Computer Science and am advanced with a PC but want to also spread my wings a littel and get on the Mac experience.

However can someone explain what type of software comes with OS X, ie word processor, windows media player things like that but obviously Mac versions? Like the iLife does that come standard or do you buy seperate?

Thanks

:p

If you buy a new Mac from Apple, iLife will be included with your purchase. Different Macs come with different software bundles. These bundles change from time to time so it is difficult to go into more detail as to what will be included. Be sure to check out the Apple website for the latest software packages that would be included with your purchase.
