    hi,

    Not sure if I should upgrade. Is it worth it on a rmbp mid 2012 with 8 gigs of ram? Performance issues? What is your experience.

    Thnaks

    I have the same build/spec as the OP; still on 10.12, but am now running into compatibility issues with app updates and new hardware. Interested in any insight into the macbookpro10,1 (2.3 gHz./8 gb/256 gb/Nvidia 650m) running 10.14?

    I have the same spec (2.3 gHz./8 gb/256 gb/Nvidia 650m) and it's working flawlessly. Did a clean install. Performance seems to be a bit smoother, maybe? Still too early to make a call on performance but I haven't encountered any issues.

    I have this model running Mojave. It seems fine, although OneDrive became an energy drainer after the upgrade.

    Thanks to all who replied; specifically, I have concerns about heat generation and the (sometimes terminal) degradation of graphics performance users experienced with 10.13, which appeared to affect systems with Ivy Bridge Graphics 4000, as well as a variety of Nvidia GPUs. On 10.12 my particular unit idles at an average of 48 degrees Celsius.

    I've always disabled transparency at every upgrade, so all the bells and whistles don't affect the battery usage.
