Posted this to the official Apple forums as well but realized I might get a better response here. Just bought a mid-2012 Macbook Pro with Yosemite and already own a mid-2012 Mini with Mavericks. Using the two of them, I find Mavericks to be far superior in stability, speed and aesthetics. Given that my Macbook is mid-2012 and is compatible with Mavericks, can I install Mavericks on it without too much trouble? Is there anything special I would need to do? I am planning to install to a new SSD, so the current installed HD would not be in the mix except for transfer of personal files, music, etc. Apologies if this has already been answered, but all I could find was advice for people who upgraded to Yosemite and wanted to go back to Mavericks. I realize some users like Yosemite, but on my machine it has been unusually buggy and slow and I would really love to have Mavericks on both machines.
