So I just got a Macbook Pro for Christmas, and today Apple releases lots of new software...

Any chance Apple will give free upgrades to people to just recently got computers? I've done a Google search for this and can't find any good answers.

Contact Apple and ask.

Not likely, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask would it?

You can ask, but the likely answer will be no.

The only upgrade program running right now is the iLife '09 Hardware Up-to-Date Program.

Apple's website states that if you bought a brand new Mac on or after January 6, 2009, that does not include iLife 09, you can upgrade to iLife 09 for US$9.95 plus tax.

So it looks like your out of luck.

MBP | Late-2008 | 15-inch | 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo | 4GB DDR3 | 250GB HDD | 9400M + 9600M GT w/ 256MB GDDR3 | Unibody

I just got off the phone to Apple and they are sending me a £69 credit to purchase iLife 09 with.

I bought a Macbook Pro in December and a Macbook that arrived yesterday. I can upgrade both with the credit.

That's what I call service.

Glad to hear. It's always good to call and ask. Apple is pretty good about things like that.

yeah I was wondering the same thing... going to call in a bit and hopefully they can do something for me too. I'm in Canada and I find that $100 to upgrade a program that I already have and have only had for a couple weeks is a bit steep.

I bought my machine 1 month ago from a third party seller, authorized.

I just called Apple and asked if they would throw me a bone.

No dice!
