    If memory serves Apple will likely offer free upgrades to OSX Mavericks with recent computer purchases right? Was thinking they would be co-released but that obviously wasn't the case today.

    I believe they provide a free upgrade to new owners once a date of release is announced.

    it would make more sense to buy the imac after maverick is release, as it would be preinstalled.

    it's like a 20 buck difference. Mavericks isn't coming out for at least a month. I rather have the newest hardware then both for both to be available. Apple isn't like Microsoft who for every small update wants 200 bucks.

    That $20 bucks actually works on unlimited computers. My roommate got the newest OS. He put it on his,mine and my/his gfs macbook pros(4). Then when I was selling my dads iMac he was able to put it on that iMac as well.

    :D

    With Mountain Lion they gave it free going back six weeks from the release date of the OS. Assuming they do the same with Mavs, you should be in good shape.

    Your roommate might want to review his Apple License agreement for installation and use of Mt. Lion on computers that are not his and he is not using let alone reselling.
