    Iv been holding off the upgrade on my rmbp late 2013. Its running reliable on 10.9.2 and don't really want to disrupt that. Do you think i should i upgrade is 10.9.3 stable

    Working fine for me... Do a TM backup and go for it. If it doesn't work out, just restore and you're back where you started.

    10.9.3 feels snappier than 10.9.2. No issues here. It also comes with security updates.


    If you restore from a TM backup after updating to 10.9.3 are you sure it'd go back to 10.9.2?

    Yes, as long as you backed up under 10.9.2.

    Rock solid for me, no complaints. Good advise though to have a back up even if you're not looking to downgrade - stuff happens so its good to have a backup.

    I was at 10.8.5 waiting for at least the 10.9.3 release before updating my 2012 Mac Mini. Updated last weekend - so far no big issues...I had to find a new "last time machine backup" geektool script and update my version of Truecrypt.....both minor and both could be easily fixed.

    The Best Yet

    Since I upgraded my 2012 retina equipped 15" MacBook Pro it's been the best ever.

    I really push this laptop hard at work and the improvement in speed stability and overall experience is truly amazing. I'm really happy with the day to day performance that's better than ever.

    It's so good that I'm going to leave it like this for the foreseeable future and just enjoy how great it is :)

    Best release of Mavericks yet!

    Feels snappier and is rock solid, no more .spin / .hang / .crash reports in console here! Best release of Mavericks yet.

    Been using 10.93 for the past two days on my 2013 Mini i7 and everything works fine. My Firewire drives still won't spin down during sleep but that's no different than 10.9, 10.91 or 10.92.

    Safari seems snappier. ;)

    In reality, I'm getting slower bootups, and slower switching to other users profiles among other little quirks. 10.9.2 was rock solid for me. Dunno about this one.

    For me 10.9.3 is a keeper. On my 2012 rmbp, with 10.9.0 and 10.9.1 the UI was very laggy and battery life was miserable (3 hours 30 whilst editing a Word document). Despite multiple clean installs, I never managed to get rid of those symptoms (even with a "pristine" system). 10.9.2 partially addressed and mitigated these issues, but 10.9.3 is absolutely spot on. There isn't a trace of UI or gesture lag to be seen anywhere and the battery usually lasts close to 7 hours for most of my routine tasks.
