Every Mac's software is developed by the same company that created it. So you get a system where everything works perfectly together. Despite all its reliability, sometimes reinstalling Mac OS X is simply necessary. This happens in cases where your computer slows down a lot because the operating system is overloaded. It should also be done if a software crash occurred or system files were found to be damaged, after a hard drive failure, or due to the need to install a different version of the Mac OS.
Like Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) last year and Lion (OS X 10.7) before this year, Apple is promoting Maverick as a major system upgrade, but it's not that easy to install. But like any major upgrade to OS X, there are a few things you should do before upgrading or reinstalling to make sure your Mac will work after the upgrade.
What to do:
The new version of OS X supports any Mac, which works with Mountain Lion and already running OS X 10.6.8 or later. Here is a list of compatible models:
(Note that while all of these computers can install MacOS X, some features such as Power Nap, AirPlay and AirDrop, have more stringent requirements.)
Apple also says you should have at least 2GB of RAM, but in our experience, you should have at least 4GB. If you only have 2GB installed, and especially if you only have 1GB of memory, you should consider upgrading your device, if possible from your specific Mac model, before installing MacOS X.
Likewise, Apple says you should have at least 8GB of free disk space on your Mac to install a major OS X upgrade, but we recommend using 15GB to 20GB of free disk space. Contact us and we will help you with the installation and reinstallation of MacOS on your MacBook or iMac.
