iLife has always been a solid offering and I've always enjoyed it back to the days when they were all free apps.iLife '11, though, doesn't feel like much of an upgrade. There are some interesting feature enhancements here, but the aspects of the software that you're likely to use most often don't seem to have changed much. In fact, iPhoto '11 is actually a bit more sluggish than the previous version. Part of me regrets the upgrade based on that alone.If you can find iLife '11 at a discount (say around $40), it's probably not a purchase you'll regret. Otherwise, I would recommend researching the new features to see if there's really anything there that's worth parting with [$]

If the only reason you're buying iLife '11 is for the updated iphoto (the reason I bought it), I don't know that you need to spend your money. There aren't that many interesting new features unless you use their book and photo links to print professionally. Besides when I adjust the time on my photos they don't automatically readjust themselves in date view. You have to leave the album first and then re-enter it. So now it takes me more time than before to make these adjustments.

        Comments about Apple iLife '11 Software:

        One of the three programs I bought this for is I Photo 11 and it is the best software especially with the improvements made from I Photo 09.

        The best use for me is the Book. The Book let's me publish a portfolio (body of work) in simplified terms very quick and easy.

        Love it!

          ...still good. The amount you can accomplish with this software and for under $50 is amazing. Hey Microsoft take a tip from Apple, your software doesn't have to cost 100's of dollars to work right.

                I bought the ILife for the Mac, and this was the exact same thing that was offered thru the Apple store just at a fraction of the cost. [...] I am very pleased and will most likely buy from this company again should I find something else I might need.

                I bought the upgrade mainly for iMovie. It is even easier to use, and the movie trailer is awesome!!! in less than 5 minutes I created a trailer. iPhoto full scree is great, the new sharing features make it even easier to post to your favorite social sites. for the price I highly recommended!!
