There's never been a better time to buy iLife from PC World.

iLife '05, that is.

The giant UK computer retailer is offering copies of iLife '05 and iWork '05 at just 97 pence each, while stocks last.

Apple released new versions of both suites at Macworld San Francisco this January, but for budget-conscious Mac users, who may not be prepared yet to make the £55 investment required for either product, PC World may just offer the answer.

iLife '05 generated rave reviews. Most agree that iLife '06, which adds easy-to-use website creation tool iWeb, offers significant improvements on that product. iWork '06 has also won praise.

If the iLife '05 offer is too good to miss; PC World charges £3.99 per box for delivery, but online customers can choose to pick up their new purchase from a nearby PC World store to avoid shipping costs.
