    MacBookPro
    Hi

    I did purchase a new Mac Book Pro in March and as I am a New Mac User i am going thru the trials and tribulations of learning it.

    Can somebody please tell me if the IWork was preinstalled with my Mac Book Pro.

    It is nice working on a Mac

    I'm not sure but I think it either comes with the OS install disks as a trial or as a trial with ilife disk.. You need to buy/upgrade from the appstore ..

    No. And no discs with your MBP for Marcn 2012 as it came with Lion pre-installed. Have a look at the App Store for Pages for $20 or so.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    1. iWork is not included either as a trial or preinstalled on your Mac. They stopped including the trial a long time ago (just reinforcing what harryb said).

    2. They never sold iLife CDs, only DVDs. Apple does not still sell the programs that made up iLife except as separate digital downloads.
