If I've purchased a new macbook pro with Mountain Lion can I now download MLion to my iMac without re-purchase from the app store?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

I disagree with Carolyn, must be the first time ever, as this has come up a couple times...the purchase of a Mac with ML preinstalled does not constitute the purchase of ML for Mac App Store purposes.  You have to repurchase a copy for installation on your other machines.  The copy on your new iMac is not tied to your Apple ID but to the machine serial number.
