It comes on Macs with a DVD burner, or in the iLife retail box.

Not sure about the original iDVD but iDVD2&3 were definitely paid upgrades unless you got them with a superdrive Mac. iDVD is a big install. My iDVD app weighs in at 1.7GB. That includes a tutorial and all the backgrounds from iDVD2 (which the upgrade keeps). As for the payment issue..I haven't got a problem with it..it's a fantastic program and well worth the money.

Sigh...Still, I love my CD eMac. Sign In or Register to comment.
