    Hi there.

    Couple of days ago, I bought a refurbished MacBook Pro (13 inch, late 2011) from Apple Store Online.

    However, on the website regarding Mountain Lion Up To Date, there was nothing about Refurbished Macs getting a free upgrade, and only new macs.

    Did Apple change their policy, and are now no longer including Refurbished Macs onto their Up to Date Programs?

    I know, but in the past, after Apple announces the new OS during WWDC, any macs purchased between the announcement and the the actual OS release, refurbished or not also gets a newer OS as part of up to date program, either in a disc, or via promo code for Mac App Store (which was the case for Lion)

    Last year, Apple included Refurbs as part of the Up to Date program as well, so I was wondering if Apple is doing the same for this year as well. (If not, well, I'll have to plunk down $20 from the savings)

    I'm interested too (bought a late 2011 refurb on June 12th) but I suspect the answer will be "You got a substantial discount on your refurb so paying $20 to upgrade to Mountain Lion shouldn't be a problem."

    Hah, I bought a refurbished iMac on June 11 (cutoff!) and was initially excited until I saw the words "new qualifying Mac" :(

    Fingers crossed, but.. it's only $19.99, so can't really complain TOO much :) .. of course, I might feel differently had I bought my iMac on July 25th.
