any suggestions please
i have read on here that the new imac's do not not come with either idvd or iweb now and that idvd is being phased out!
The only answer is to purchase ilife 11, which means more money, and after reading about ilife 11, it aint that great apparently, because the iphoto version on it is not good !
So, what to do now.......i am a little disgruntled to say the least !
i dont think apple support know much either.
many other threads like this one:
I've heard that some who've complained have gotten copies of iDVD.....
But if you really need iDVD, you can still purchase iLife '11
They dropped the price of this to $49. Probably for users that want iWeb and iDVD with their new Macs.
My complaint is twofold. First, why bother to maintain on your web pages that iLife '11 "comes with iWeb and iDVD" in addition to iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand? All the new Macs are pre-loaded with iLife '11 for your convenience, but it is not the complete version of iLife, is it? This is basically false advertizing. I am not impressed. And the fact that I can't even buy this as an add-on from the App Store (seriously, I would have paid $5-$10 for the privilege ...) is also a kick in the pants.
Second, how dare Apple use the announcement of the iCloud to decide what sort of storage options I should have. If I want to waste my time creating silly little DVD menus and burning my home movies to a boring old disc, that is my choice as a consumer of mass media. To boot, cloud computing is not the be-all and end-all. It is still early stages and long-term media storage across all platforms is a huge issue.
Ask any librarian or archivist about preserving media (both print and digital) over the long term. There is a very good reason why your local public library and archives still uses microfilm/form as their preferred method of preservation for print materials; it remains the only preservation medium not to have become redundant.
I am so mad about this that after wanting an Apple for so long, this may be the last one I ever buy.
