Its lightning fast, no lag at all.
Stable enough for day to day use?
Yes, i'm running it on my main work machine.
I did a clean fresh install and manually transferred my files over from my backup. Apparently there are bugs / issues with upgrading, and it generally doesn't run as fast. No problem for me because i've been meaning to start fresh for a while now.
The only issue I have is that VMware fusion doesn't work in unity mode, so I just run it in windowed mode in its own space.
Nice. I think I should be ok then (fingers crossed). Or I could just load it on the 2011 Air I have for testing purposes. 2011 Air only has 2 G's, but I'd like to test the compression features. Thanks for the help.
Thanks for the update. I have not downloaded it yet but multiple sources said I should. I will be updating tonight and should let you know my thoughts on the beta.
BuCkDoG, please let us know how it goes
I've been running on integrated graphics all day, no perceptible lag at all.
Hardware limitation my arse.
That's good news, thanks for the insight.
Have you noticed any increase in battery life? I am going to try it on a 15" 2009 MBP next week. Can't wait to test it out myself.
Excellent question, I'm really interested myself!
Where is it available for DL?
Developer program. $99 a year.
you can always get that by other means
how does the developer program work? what happens when the beta is over are you forced to upgrade/pay for new os?
I think no but I could be wrong.
Damn, I can't start clean, I need to upgrade. I guess I will wait for a build stable enough for an upgrade!
ehhhh, well they definitely integrated the webkit fix back into safari and that is running way smooth...
other aspects of the ui haven't been as optimized for retina, and you can easily still see it if you have a bunch of safari windows open simultaneously when going to mission control...
i did a quick video with about 10 windows each on my early '13 2.7ghz/16gb/512gb 15" rMBP running 10.9 compared to my '11 13" mba i5 hd3k yadda...
so yes, there is some optimization going on and it is better, but who knows if they'll get around to optimizing everything for retina this round... i do think optimization will be key though as opposed to brute forcing it with better hardware... but who knows...
Developers get the GM for free on release.
keep in mind many apps need to be updated and will straight crash when you load them, so even if it is snappy you give up utility for now.
But yeah it is exciting finally to get smooth performance on the screen
