    Just upgraded from a late 2009 iMac, core 2 duo, to a 27" mid level iMac over the weekend. I know there have been many features added to OS X that didn't work on that old iMac. Is there any way to look that information up? Or does anyone want to hit the biggies for me? I've already noticed Hand-Off and need to look up how that works exactly.

    Congratulations on your new purchase! Are you looking for technical under the hood sort of information, or "user experience" sort of stuff? Perhaps a bit of both?

    Some technical-ish details about El Capitan:

    A handy guide about the features about El Capitan:

    Maybe this stuff will at least point you in the right direction or answer some things you're curious about.

    Thanks for the congratulations. It definitely is feeling like an enormous step up. So fast, and so big! :)

    Thanks so much for the links! I was really looking for both technical and experience updates. I recall, in watching the keynotes over the last several years, many feature sets that were excluded on my older mac due to hardware or other reasons. So far, Handoff, Airdrop (that seems to work), and Airplay are all essentially new features for me.
