    Good morning,

    I just bought a new laptop - Macbook Air which will be working Mavericks.

    My old laptop is from Mid-2010
    Part number - MC372LL/A

    My question:
    Right now I have 4 RAM gb. Since I will keep this computer for probably 5 more years. Should I update 8 RAM?

    I have 500 hard drive. Should I change this hard drive to SSD?

    Once I more all these items, should I put update Mavericks?

    cheers
    Stu

    I'd go ahead and do the Mavs update. Speeds things up pretty significantly.

    If you want speed, get the 8 GB and the SSD and keep Snow Leopard.

    I agree, my now-sold 2007 iMac with 3GB ran (a little) better with Mavs

    I am running a 2010 model with mavericks and imo it's the best build since snow leopard.
    If you really want do speed up your mac get 8GB RAM and a SSD (the difference is unbelievable - and both got relatively cheap in the last years! ).

    Mavericks uses RAM more efficiently so I would definitely go for it, especially if you don't decide to upgrade the hardware.
