    I updated a while back from Snow Leopard to OS X EI Capitan, all went well only issue is opening mail and browswer can sometimes take a bit longer then prior with Snow Leopard. Is updating to the current OS possible with my older system. See specs below. Thanks for any info.

    My two cents. I ran Sierra on the same model Macbook Pro, with 8GB RAM and an SSD, coming from Yosemite. Didn’t feel quite as fast, though acceptable. I did downgrade back to Yosemite.
