Apple will release OS X Mountain Lion in July for $19.99 at the Mac App Store
Apple's next installment of the OS X operating system, called
Mountain Lion (version 10.8)
, may be released as soon as July 25.
, this exact date of release is based off of the fact that Apple retail stores will be conducting store updates the night of July 24. It speculates that these updates will include installations of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on all store Macs, as well as the addition of promotional information throughout the store.
OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be Apple's ninth operating system update in the OS X series (unless you count the public beta version "Kodiak," which would make this the 10th release).
Apple has priced
OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
at $19.99 and it will be available for download in the Mac App Store.

It's perhaps more precise to say they are dropping OS upgradability for those models. Software support for Lion should continue until mid-2013. Since the models that won't be able to upgrade to Mountain Lion were made in 2007-2009, that works out to cessation of software support ~4-6 years after production (e.g., 4 years for the Mac mini, 6 years for the MacBook Pro). I believe Apple withdraws hardware support 7 years after a model is discontinued (though you can of course get aftermarket parts and repairs).
