    If I buy a Mac here in the USA, it will come with a Snow Leopard OS X disc in English... If I move to Mexico and they update OS X to a newer version(after Snow Leopard), will I still be able to upgrade my Mac to that newer OS release?

    Mac OS X comes with all languages it supports. So if you buy a Mac in China, you get a Mac capable of having its interface in all supported languages, including English, French, Spanish, Danish, .... .

    An update will not void that functionality. I have set my Macs to English, even though I bought them in a non-English speaking country.

    To change the language of your GUI, go to System Preferences > Language & Text. This is not Windows, which only seems to come with "localised" versions
