I know what you mean. But at least if you want to upgrade to Mountain Lion you can get it for free. That's what, $20 saved, for what it's worth.
I think Apple machines are gorgeous (just splashed out on a new iMac) but their web site(s) are appalling. I wanted to download XCode 4.4 but you can't get that direct from the Apple dev site, it takes you to the Mac App Store. OK, fair enough, but when you try to download XCode it redirects you again to of all things iTunes. There, it turns out that your $99 Apple dev ID is not good enough. You need an Apple ID. Well, I had one so I tried it and iTunes flatly refused to accept it, despite letting me download anything else with tat ID - but not XCode. In the end I had to create a brand-new Apple ID just to get it. The whole thing is just a mess.
