    My Mac is nearly 5 years old, with 2G memory,350G HD, and was running Maverick OS.. I was having a problem with the spinning wheel continuously coming up even with the simplest of task. I was told that Maverick was to much OS for 2G of memory, I backed up everything wiped the HD clean and re-installed Mountain Lion. Now I am having the same results with this OS as with Maverick. I need to know from you that know, would it be better to re-install maverick or stay with mt.lion? I still haven't figured out what is causing the spinning wheel. All help would be appreciated! Thanks

    You might have better luck in the Mavericks or Lion forum...not the iOS 7 forum.

    Mountain Lion is more of a resource hog then Mavericks.

    I recommend a nice SSD!

    For example: Samsung 840 EVO, 250GB or 500GB (and don't forget TRIM Enabler).

    Plus, as others have mentioned, this has nothing to do with iOS 7. Why did you post here?
