    Hi, I recently bought a 2011 Mac Mini. Will I get a free upgrade to Mountain Lion? I saw something about registering within 30 days of purchase but I'm not sure what I need to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I know nothing about having to register. But that would make sense I guess. I have the Rmbp I was assuming that I will get the update for free with the purchase.

    Do I actually have to register also?

    that's what apple is saying.. so we gotta request something!

    Oh wait! We have 30 days AFTER ML is released to request our Free upgrade! so no rush or panic :)

    Yeah, that was the thing I read. What does this mean?: "Customers must request their Up-to-Date upgrade within 30 days of purchasing their Mac computer."

    Does that just apply to people who buy a Mac after the release of Mountain Lion but only has Lion installed? It's a really badly worded page.

    If you get a Mac afterward you will either have it pre-installed or you will get the code at purchase.
