    And I am brand new to Macs and very nervous. It is a refurbished macbook pro 13" standard specs June 2012. It will come with Lion. Since I am so afraid I will screw this up with ths first time use, I would like to chek the order of the steps I plan:

    Go thru setup and establish network connection
    Get redemption code for upgrade
    Get from Mac App Store and hit install

    My question is - should I check in the Apple Menu to see if there are any updates (software?) there before I start the Mountain Liin upgrade, should I check there after a successful (praying there) install or will the ML upgrade take care of all necessary ugrades, all in one so to speak.

    Thank you for any help you can give this non tech newbie. I do plan on getting some type of device very soon for backup.

    If you bought it from Apple, then it'll likely have Mountain Lion on it when it arrives. I say this because I bought a Refurb 13" MBP from them recently and it came with ML. There were some updates waiting when I first fired it up but I didn't have to go through the whole OS X Mountain Lion Up-to-Date Program business.

    It will likely arrive with Mt. Lion pre-installed and you may get other surprises as well. Mine was listed as having a 5400RPM drive and it was actually 7200RPM. Enjoy your Mac.
