    i downloaded this OS because apple and fanboys alike (who attacked me even in an earlier mavericks article published by this site when i dared question why i should bother upgrading from ML) said that with the "advanced technologies" my computer could simulate nuclear blasts, calculate the extension of the universe and dance tango.


    well, no.


    it can't.


    and it lags.

    It lags on both my MacBook Air and iMac, on the Air worse.

    Mavericks running amazingly on my 2013 air (haswell, 4gb ram, 128gb ssd). Significantly smoother than ML...

    Same here...My 2012 Macbook Air is lagging quite horribly (horribly for a < 2 year old computer)

    It runs like a champ on my wife's 2012 MBA. Mountain Lion was kind of choppy. Mavericks turned it into a new computer. I'm impressed.

    Ugh I knew I had to get the 2013 version that came with Haswell and 128gb instead of the other 2013 version.

    I was ill-advised at the store.
