    Well, I am perfectly happy with my 2010 13 inch 1,86GHz/4GB MBA, I use it only for little to medium intensive tasks. Nevertheless, an upgrade to 10.9 would be nice but I couldn't find informations about the support of C2D. :confused:

    This is what Apple is showing right now on the Mavericks page.

    I had the same question AvengerZero, but as other posters have detailed, our machine is in the list for the current beta.

    Assuming no terrible bugs turn up on the C2D models I think we can reasonably hope for it to be available on our machines. As machines like ours have a much longer useful lifespan than, say, laptops from 6-7 years ago, it's in Apple's interest to get us on the new OS, keep us sweet, keep us with Apple when we reach our own upgrade point.

    The main thing that Held Systems back from ML were Intel X3100 graphics cards (mostly) - Seems Maverick has the same Bottom Threshold of Nvidia 9400m as the minimum - meaning All Airs except 1st Gen should work - including the 2010 era machines.

    I've got a similar spec MBA to the OP (late 2010, 4GB, 1.86GHz). I'm sorta, kinda toying with an upgrade to a 13" Haswell rMBP when they're released (mainly because I'm getting sick of the fans spinning up and sounding like a vacuum cleaner every time I play a video on the interwebs).

    Before plunking down the cash though, has the DP of Mavericks been kind to Core2Duo MBAs, or does it require more oomph than Mountain Lion?
