Hi, So im going to buy a 13 inch low end Macbook Pro mid 2012 soon, and the store that im going to buy it from has both updated Macbook Pros with Mountain Lion and Macbook Pros that that still have Lion on them.

So I have been reading a lot about the reduced battery life and some other bugs but im concerned the most about the battery life, so thats why im not sure which Macbook to buy.

Please help :D

I wouldn't hesitate to get the Mountain Lion update
I have not seen any negative impact on the battery on my MBA

Battery life is a mixed bag:

Do factory installed Mountain Lion Macbooks have these problems aswell with battery life?

All I want to tll you is that you really have to wait for the next generation of MBP which is going to be released in a few months.
