    Does anyone know when ML will show up on a new Mac purchased from the Apple store. I'm ready to purchase but would rather buy with a clean install instead of immediately upgrading even if it's for free.

    have you been under a rock? It was release yesterday on the app store. I would imagine if you purchased a new mac you must have some sort of redeem code?

    I don't want to redeem a code or perform an upgrade. I want to buy a new Mac and have ML on it already.

    It will be a few weeks most likely.

    If you have an Apple Store near you, buy it from there. They should be happy to help download/install Mountain Lion on it for you. Best Buy or one of the others may even provide this complimentary service.

    It's unrealistic to think that all pre-boxed Macs would have it already pre-installed. Now, if you buy a boxed Mac in a month from now, then sure it may well have Mountain Lion pre-installed ... just as my new, boxed MacBook Pro had Lion pre-installed on it upon purchase at a non-Apple Store last August (a month after Lion had been released into the wild!).
