I remember when i first upgraded with mavericks, my computer was slow and laggy as it could be and I don't want to go through that again. Plus will I get all the features the new update has to offer? Thank you.

I have a late 2010 iMac and Yosemite has worked for me so far with no problems. Safari is much faster and I don't notice any kind of delay when I open things up.

Works just fine on my 09 MBP. Takes a little bit to boot up, but that's not surprising from a 5 1/2 year old machine with a standard HDD. It's not as smooth as my late-13 rMBP, but it works just fine for light browsing and media storage.

It'll work (having just done so). Whether there's much point is another matter, as a lot of the new features (eg. Handoff) don't work due to hardware limitations.

I have downloaded it on late 2008 MBP and it's working fine....

Go ahead and press the button, you will be fine....

Works perfectly fine on my early 2011 MBP. It's very smooth and fast.
I did a clean install, not an upgrade.
