Only reason it's free is because it only runs on their hardware so they have nothing to worry about. Windows on the other hand, can be installed on anything so it makes sense for Microsoft to charge for a Windows OEM license.

I quite disagree w people saying apple product is overprice, it is valid if we are in year before 2007. However If you compare spec to spec , meaning you compare the apple with premium notebook from Dell or Lenovo or HP you will notice they are actually have the same price.

To certain extent i am questioning why Dell charging more than Apple

Well you can't really knock them for OS X upgrades, always been pretty good value, and you don't say that about Apple everyday!

Not trying to be rude, but in the last paragraph i *think* you made a typographical error.
The article reads, "Whether you're going from Snow Leopard or Mountain Lion, you can update to Mountain Lion for free starting today."
I think you meant to say, "Whether you're going from Snow Leopard or Mountain Lion, you can update to MAVERICK for free starting today."

correct me if i'm wrong, sorry if i am. Just caught my eye.

So Apple is trailing Microsoft in free OS upgrades.
Wonder if Apple might some day put tiles on their start screens like MS did with Win8?! :D
