    I'm thinking of getting a MacBook Pro Retina 15'' (Late 2013). I know it comes installed with Mavericks. I would like to know if it would be possible to install Mountain Lion, since Mavericks' iBooks is horrible and mostly screws up my huge library of books I had on iTunes. I would aslo like to avoid the countless incompatible pieces of software that have so far crashed on mavericks.

    Long story short, I would like to format the new MacBook Pro and install Mountain Lion. Will it allow me to do so?

    Sometimes when a system comes factory installed with the latest OS, and you try and clean install the system with a previous version, it gives you something to the effect of "You are installing a previous version of Mac OS, please install version 10.9 or above" something to that effect, if anyone has information or tips, it would be really helpful

    The drivers would probably only be available on mavericks or higher.
