If I buy windows 8 for a new system will I stil get a free upgrade to 8.1 or do I have to pay more and buy the disk for 8.1?

The upgrade to 8.1 is free through the MS Store.

But if you're buying today, why not just get the 8.1?

It doesn't cost anything to upgrade from 8 to 8.1.

6 months from now, when you want to reinstall the OS for whatever reason, you'll probably wish you had spent that extra £10.
Reinstall 8, then do all the updates, then the upgrade to 8.1 again......

It's possible to obtain a 8.1 ISO legally, isn't it?

I'm not too familiar with the specifics of Windows 8.1 ISOery.

If you buy 8.1, sure. If you upgrade from 8 to 8.1, I'm not sure.

Not officially. I'm not sure about the legality of torrents for something you have a key for, but they don't officially offer the ISOs for Windows 8 like they did for Windows 7 at Digital River.
