Resolved Question


by LolaAngell33 / October 17, 2014 7:24 AM PDT

What is it? Do I need/want it? I got notice that there was an update for Software Update. I downloaded it, then as usual the App Store window opened and there was Yosemite. I want to keep my Pro up to date.... but.

It sure does seem like yesterday we were all agog with the features of Snow Leopard and yet here we are, less than one year on from its release date, getting ready to install a new version of OS X

This list from Wikipedia:
The full list of compatible models:

mid-2007 or newer iMac
aluminum MacBook, 2009 or newer polycarbonate MacBook
2007 or newer MacBook Pro
late-2008 or newer MacBook Air
2009 or newer Mac Mini
2008 or newer Mac Pro

If your machine is in this group and has at least 2GB of RAM, 8GB of free Hard drive space then you are set to go.
On the subject of RAM, if you only have 2GB, your machine will not give you a very stella performance.

I upgraded this morning and am still looking through it. So far, so good

I have 8GB of memory 1333 MHz DDR3 and my machine falls into the list given. God, I hope Apple doesn't come out with a new update soon that my Pro can't handle.... these things are not cheap. So.... am I good to go? Thanks, Digger and P

But I would install the upgrades as they come. My question would be ...If I choose not to install Yosemite , Will I continue to get updates for Mavericks and keep running as I am now ?

Yes, there will still be updates to Mavericks

but they will only be Security Updates, not to lessen their importance, but for the built-in apps like Safari, iPhoto, iMovie or Keynote, not so much.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
