Put this together for about $400... closest thing to this in a mini (that I would never be able to expand) was $1,700 plus. I work for PCMall/MacMall and that is with my Apple EPP... No thank you. As I was saying I should be able to follow this guide (http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-unibeast-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html) if I start on my 10.7 iMac and purchase the 10.8 upgrade? or will this only install as an upgrade?
When you buy/upgrade ML from the App store, it will start downloading the ML installation app to your applications folder. If you don't want to install it on that machine, just cancel the installation process that starts after the installation app finishes downloading (~4GB). With the ML installation app now in your applications folder, you can follow the Unibeast guide to make an installation USB stick that you can use on your 'new' machine. With that stick, you can upgrade a previous installation, or start a brand new one (e.g., no OS installed).
