    can someone speak to *stability* and *smoothness* on the Macbook 12 ("series 1", early 2015)?

    I am on El Cap, use iCloud a lot, and do data science stuff with Terminal, Python, etc

    Am wondering if it is as smooth as El Cap (esp. Mission control). Can someone speak to that?

    I have been running Sierra on a 2015 MacBook through all of the betas since it was announced and it runs just like El Capitan. I have had no issues other than various fixes through the beta process. I installed the first GM when it was released and updated to the latest one late last week. No issues to report. Enjoy.

    Great to hear. And there's one more thing: did you do a clean install or just upgrade?

    I don't think Mac OS/OSX updates have had demanding hardware requirements for a while now. Mountain Lion (10.8) was supported on all Macs from ~ 2007/2008/2009 and newer, and Sierra (10.12) is supported on all Macs from ~2009/2010 or newer. Hope this helps!

    yes; although initially on 2015 Macbook 12", mission control was a bit choppy in OS X Yosemite. upgrading to El Cap did make it noticeably smoother, and it has been running great since then.

    I upgraded to Sierra today on my base model 2015 1.1Ghz MacBook and everything installed perfectly. I noticed it running quite a bit quicker as well and it seems to handle all of the user interface commands much more smoothly with transparency enabled. I love what I see so far!
