Mavericks compatibility


Hi everybody,

Apple’s iOS 7 announcement overshadowed most of its other WWDC news, but there are a lot of Mac users out there anxious to get their hands on the new version of OS X. Claiming to have run out of big cat names, Apple has switched the scheme for OS X 10.9 (and future versions) to iconic locations in California, in this case famed surfing spot Mavericks.
So will your Mac be able to ride the OS X 10.9 Mavericks wave?
In general, Mavericks should work on machines that are capable of running Mountain Lion. So we’re talking about 64-bit Intel-basedMacs, but there are a few hardware variants that are well and truly being put out to pasture.

(look for an old mac picture)

The OS X 10.9 Mavericks compatibility list
iMac: Mid-2007 or newer
MacBook: 13-inch Aluminum from late 2008 or newer, 13-inch from early 2009 or newer
MacBook Pro: 13-inch from mid-2009 or newer, 15-inch from mid/late 2007 or newer, 17-inch from 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 or newer

For some devices, ike the iMac and MacBook Pro, Mavericks will reach back a fair number of years. Meanwhile, your Mac Mini will need to be the 2009 refresh or later to get on OS X 10.9. The 13-inch MacBook Pro lagged behind other sizes in specs for a few generations, so only the mid-2009 refresh and later are supported by Mavericks. Most of the unsupported devices have adequate graphical chipsets based on the ATI Radeon X1600 or an Intel GMA 950/x3100.

So you just have to take read the list and see if your Mac it´s compatible with the new OS from Apple,
