Hi guys picked up new Mac Mini yesterday & really liking it.

It came with Lion OS but I thought that it should have come with Mountain Lion OS preinstalled.

Will Apple give me the update for free & if so how do I go about this?

Cheers

Your Mac will read the hard drive. Copy the files to the internal drive, reformat the drive for OS X Extended Journaled, then copy the files back.
