News: Retina MacBook Pro and EPEAT, Mountain Lion launch date, North Carolina data center, and more!

16 Jul 12

Apple may have put all their elegible products back onto EPEAT, but a member of the Electronics TakeBack Coalition says there's a chance the MacBook Pro with Retina display might not make the cut if EPEAT performs a review of the machine's currently gold rating. If EPEAT performs a review, there's the possibility the MacBook Pro with Retina display, the least user-repairable Mac ever,could lose its EPEAT gold, and be removed from the registry entirely. An overnight event at Apple Stores worldwide has lead MacRumors to suggest the release of Mountain Lion will be July 25th. Overnight updates to the stores on July 24th could mean new marketing in the form of Mountain Lion posters and such, and thus, a next-day launch would make sense.
