    Hey dude, I’m no expert on this so I’d like someone else to chip in and help but I think it’s possible to purchase ML from the App store and then not install it. Once you click purchase it downloads the file first and I think it then gives you the option to install it.

    I know that it’s possible to re-download ML afterwards (source) however, I haven’t tried either, I simply downloaded and installed and didn’t pay attention to any option to cancel the installation (although I’m sure you can).

    You can purchase it from the App Store and then load it onto a USB drive and treat that as an install disc. http://lifehacker.com/5928780/how-to-burn-os-x-mountain-lion-to-a-dvd-or-usb-flash-drive
