    Hi

    System Requirements for iLife 11 (assuming installer Media - i.e: a DVD) is 10.6.3, Intel Processor, at least 1GB RAM and at least 5GB of free disk space. Individual components of iLife require additional system requirements. For example Garage Band's "Learn to Play" needs an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor or better. 24-bit recording in Garage Band requires a 24-bit audio interface compatible with OS X. AVCHD in iMovie also requires an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor or better.

    If you're planning to purchase the suite of Apps from the App Store (requires 10.6.6 or later and an Apple ID) the same advice applies.

    As with any PC a fairly general 'rule-of-thumb' is to install as much RAM you can afford and that the hardware can support; a fast-ish (7200rpm 3.5" or 5400rpm or faster 2.5" - - SSD would be best), large-ish capacity (250GB or larger) hard drive and the latest OS the hardware can support.

    If iLife is installed from the Media you update it using Software Update from the Apple Menu/System Preferences. If purchased from the App Store the updates will come from the App Store itself. You can't manually download an update .dmg for an iLife component installed from the installer media and expect to apply it to the one purchased and installed from the App Store. The same is true the other way round.

    HTH?
