Apple’s new operating for Macs, called Mountain Lion, is expected to launch this week. 9to5 Mac speculates Mountain Lion will go live in the Mac App Store on July 25, following a planned “overnight” setup at Apple Store retail locations.Apple reportedly gave the new Mountain Lion to Apple Care reps¬†this weekend so they’ll have time to familiarise themselves with the new OS at work.¬†

Mountain Lion will be available as a $19.99 upgrade for current Mac owners. If you bought your Mac within the last few weeks though, the update will be free.
