Hi everyone,

I have a late 2010 11” MacBook Air with 4GB of ram and running El Capitan. I’m considering upgrading to High Sierra. Does anyone have any experience running High Sierra on this machine? Does it run well, comparable to El Capitan?

Any info would be great. Thanks!!!

:)

Hi Douglas, I got the same machine as you do I just upgraded from El Capitan to High Sierra 10.13.6 the other day, and it works fine, other than a thing that kinda bothers me a bit regarding the login screen and the it kinda overheats a bit while watching videos but i want to believe it is because the battery has to be replaced and needs to be internally cleaned since the last owner never did that.

Other than that it works fine.

Cheers!

Hi!

Thanks so much for the reply, thats great to hear. I am thinking about upgrading to High Sierra to get the latest security updates and longest compatability so I really appreciate the feedback.

Have a nice day!
