Today there has been confirmation that OS X Mountain Lion is coming late-July, or as much confirmation as one can get in the vacuum of Apple’s typical pre-launch silence. However, will Apple also release new Macs, specifically fresh for 2012 iMac and Mac mini models, at the same time like it did last year.

A third-party support organization has told employees that a vacation blackout is in effect, something that usually coincides with a product roll-out. Whereas we know that OS X Mountain Lion will arrive in July, more than a few are hoping updated iMac and Mac mini models will appear around the same time.

Last July when Apple shipped OS X Lion, the company has also delivered updated MacBook Air and Mac mini models.
