I cannot run diskutil on my brand new Retina Macbook Pro 2012. When I try to run it, (including sudo), the terminal says "command not found". I looked in usr/bin and usr/sbin and could not find diskutil.

Am I looking in the wrong place for it, or are there deeper problems with my system?

It should be in /usr/sbin/diskutil by default. If you really need it, you could try doing an upgrade install of OS X from the recovery partition. – user495470 Feb 25 '13 at 15:14
