    Does anybody know if my 11" MBA 2010 with 1.4 GHz core 2duo, 2 GB of 1067 MHz ddr3 ram, nvidia geforce 320M 256 mb will run os x mavericks smoothly? I know it can't run lion or mountain lion smoothly as I tried but had to downgrade back to snow leopard. I heard mavericks is better than lion, so has some tried with success??

    What performance issues did you see with Mountain Lion on your MBA?

    It was very slow, I couldn't even cycle through my chrome tabs without lag.

    Do it!

    Installed it on a friends MBA (2010 / 2GB RAM) and it runs smooth as butter. Upgraded from Snow Leopard.

    Runs great on my late 2010 2GB 13" - better than ML actually.

    THanks, I guess I might just take the plunge and try it. Hopefully I won't have to reinstall Snow Leopard like last time.

    Clone your HD on an external, install a fresh copy of Mavericks on your SSD, migrate your content from your external backup and you'll be fine.
