I bought a new Macbook Pro after WWDC. it said that I can update for free, but must send a request within 30 days."Customers must request their Up-to-Date upgrade within 30 days of purchasing their Mac computer." so...
If I upgrade Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion (on a 2009 MacBook 5.2), is the update limited to OS X or can I also expect to see upgrades to free apps like Address Book, Mail and iCal? If the free apps do not change to match the latest versions available, can I expect updates to the free apps soon?
I am currently running version 10.7.4 from what I read and what I was able to make out from my serial number I wont be able to upgrade from Lion to Mountain Lion as it says my imac is a late 2006 model.I am just curious if I am able to run Lion why Apple isnt supporting the older models that can? Seems odd to me and it is not in my budget to buy a new mac and my current one is running perfectly. I'm not sure how much I will miss out not having Mountain Lion.
I have had a lot of conflicting answers to my question, so here goes.Would the imac (as sepcified below) be compatible with mountain lion?

I have a 2009 imac running intel core duo 2.66ghz processor, 4gb ram and 256mb graphics. It currently runs os x 10.5.8 and I wish to upgrade it to the latest operating system (lion?) I recently purchased a macbook pro 3 inch running lion. A friend told me I'd be able to upgrade my imac too as 'apple doesn't charge people twice.'
1) Is this true? and if so, how do I obtain the free upgrade? 2) should I wait until mountain lion is available? 3) Is the computer going to be capable of running the latest OS or will it need a ram upgrade?
I plan on finally upgrading my Mac OS to Mountain Lion in July, but I'm still running Leopard.[URL].. says I need to at least have Snow Leopard. I really don't want to have to upgrade to Snow Leopard or Lion just so I can upgrade again in July.
My 2007 iMac keeps shutting off randomly. I'm running Mountain Lion. I have tried unplugging it from the back waiting and plugging it back in. Sometimes when I have turned it back on, the fan will run loudly.
I bought my Mid-2011 iMac a few weeks before Lion came out...so I was eligible for a free upgrade. Now, unfortunately, I am having problems with my iMac so I want to reinstall the OS. However, I only have the Snow Leopard disc to reinstall. Can I still upgrade to Lion for free? Would it be in my App Store as I already upgraded so I can just re-upgrade?
I would like to use a perfectly good Canon Pixma ip4200 printer with OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and Yosemite 10.10.1 on my 2013 model iMac but Canon say they do not do a driver for these more recent versions of OSX later than 10.7. Is there any way to get this to work?
After the disaster getting Quicken for Mac 2007 (or earlier) to sort-of work on Lion, has anyone checked if the Lion Compatible Quicken for Mac works on the new Mountain Lion operating system? Even though this isn't an Apple problem, I know I'm not the only person who would love to update to a new Mac; however, they all come with Mountain Lion, and many of us are terrified of losing financial data if there's another
