Mountain Lion. Available On The Mac App Store For $19.99, This July


Aggressively priced compared to most other OS offerings, Apple today announced that OS X Mountain Lion(the next iteration of its operating system designed for desktops) – will be available from the Mac App Store for $19.99, this July.

When it hits next month, Apple’s new OS is set to bring several notable features, including ‘Notification Center’ (with the ability to turn off alerts via the OS’s new ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature – also coming to iOS 6), Search in Launchpad, a Dashboard widgets browser, iCloud Tabs (just as in iOS 6), “Power Nap” — a new feature which will allow your Mac to continue syncing data while it sleeps, Game Center, AirPlay Mirroing … and more.

As noted in its press release issued earlier tonight, those looking to update to the next big cat will first require either OS X Lion or OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8 or later), as well as 2GB of memory and 8GB of available space.

We’ll be going into Mountain Lion‘s core features in a lot more detail as this week progresses. In the meantime, we thought we’d provide you with a super-quick overview.
