Hello, I want to buy a new MBP but I have a little doubt. If I order it now, there's still the risk of receiving it with Lion installed or now all MBPs are shipped with Mountain Lion? With my internet connection it will be a problem to download ML to make the upgrade...
Thanks for your help.

Do you have a friend with ML? Then, just use his Mac to create a USB stick with ML. Or, use HIS Internet connection for downloading.

I read a day or so ago that someone bought a MBP, and had Lion on it, not Mountain Lion. So, its a maybe if you do or not have ML pre installed. If I were you, and you have an Apple store nearby, I would drop by or even call them to see if they can answer your question.

Yes, if you step in apple store, they will down load the ML for you and does not hurt to ask them to make an installer for you. The down load in the store will take not more than ten minutes or so.
