Apple issued a developer version of the OS X 10.9 Mavericks operating system on the eve of the WWDC 2013 , and today the Cupertino company released the official system requirements for the new OS. Judging from the list of models, not all “Mac ” computers will be compatible with it. Basically, existing Mac users will be able to upgrade to the new operating system, not only to the current platform OS X Mountain Lion – you can switch to the Mavericks even with OS X Snow Leopard.
Basic requirements for OS X 10.9 Mavericks are modest: a 64-bit processor Intel, 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of hard disk space. Supports Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 or Xeon.
Mavericks can be installed on the following models:
- iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
- MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch Early 2009 or newer)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009 or newer), (15-inch, mid / late 2007 or newer), (17-inch late 2007 or newer)
- MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
- Mac Mini (Early 2009 or newer)
- Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
- Xserve (Early 2009)
To use functions such as synchronization notifications between iOS and OS X, need to set your iPhone or iPad operating system iOS 7 with a connected account iCloud.
It’s okay if you can not move to the new OS. Many still work on older XP, Vista, Tiger or Snow Leopard. However, the Mavericks – really a major upgrade, for which you can decide to upgrade your computer.
