Apple has sold three million copies of OS X Mountain Lion, the latest release of the Mac operating system, in just four days.

 
The software released last Wednesday and has been downloaded by millions of Mac users around the world since then, with the low price tag of $19.99, $10 cheaper than the previous version, likely a huge factor in the surge of support.
 
Apple touts a list of 200 new features for the release, though many of these are minor alterations. Some of the larger changes, however, including iCloud integration, a new Messages app, the Notification centre, dictation, and the Game Centre. Facebook integration will also be added in an upcoming update.
