Will Mountain Lion be preinstalled on MBPs that ship in 3-4 weeks?

    If somebody orders a Retina MacBook Pro today, it's pretty safe to assume that Mountain Lion will be out by the time their order ships.

    So will Apple either:
    a) Adhere to what the original order says the machine will come with e.g. OS X Lion.

    or

    b) Ship back-ordered MBPs with the very-newly released OS X Mountain Lion.

    My guess is the former. But is there any precedent for this kind of thing?

    Cheers!

    No, all currently shipping Macs come with Lion preinstalled and qualify for a free upgrade to ML when it's released. Even though ML may be released later this month, it's anyone's guess whether that will affect Macs ordered today.

    You will find out when your macbook arrives and even then you get a free upgrade so it's irrelevant which one it ends up shipping with.

    You misinterpreted his question.

    I think that they may start loading ML on new Macs a few days before the release. So if your machine is built before the middle (15 to 20th) of July, I'd say no.

    No, I didn't. Re-read my entire post.

    All 2012 MBP's are qualified for free upgrade to Mountain Lion.
    So don't worry.
