OS X Mavericks on MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009)


After getting back from the OTN Nordic Tour 2013, I figured it was time to give OS X Mavericks a go.

I’m currently using a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009). It’s a little long in the tooth, but it has 8G RAM and a 256G SSD, so it still performs pretty well. At least well enough for me not to replace it just yet. 🙂

The download took about 30 minutes. I guess I’m a little behind the curve here because lots of people complained about the download times. It pays to hold off for a few days. The installation took about the same amount of time too, so after about an hour I had Mavericks up and running.

Several people reported really slow performance after the upgrade. So far it looks pretty much the same to me.

I had already read Jason Arneil‘s article about VirtualBox 4.3 on OS X Mavericks, which saved me a lot of time. I can’t live without VirtualBox, so any OS that can’t run it is out of the Window for me. I had similar issues to those he saw and fixed them in the same way. Thanks Jason!

So now everything is running as normal. If anything scary jumps out I will report… 🙂

  1. Since installing OS X MAVERICK I have problems. I get accessibility error messages and then everything closes down

  2. Adult men want massive bottoms. It can be elegant and represents the heart and soul of what males discover hot in ladies.
    A sizeable butt symblizes feminity. So iit is hardly surprising that adult menn may possibly
    produce a ass cams fetish. Some possibly want analwebcam.
    As peculiar as it might sound it is really purely
    natural to need to see black booty cam live,
    especially if have zero some other avenue. So have you thought
    to become a member of our webcam anaql now
