If you buy from an Apple Store yes. Currys, Comet et al I'd say no.

Can't say for sure man, when I used to work in the stores we'd take anything back within 14 days as long as it was cosmetically perfect. Maybe just give them a call at the online store customer service thing, they should be pretty upfront about it

I did a mountain Lion torrent, put it on external HD and booted from that. It was a while ago, but think it was this one:

My external hard drive has suddenly stopped working on my mac. It won't mount/allow me to select it on finder, but is recognised under Disk Utility. Anyone know anything i can do besides formatting it? thanks

Firstly try 'repairing' it through disk utility. If it doesn't work, use an app like disk warrior.

They're still selling the non-retina joints alongside, they will get phased out of course at some point, prolly when retina display economies of scale and shit are enough to drop prices.
