OS X Mavericks — *FREE in Appstore TODAY
Fundamentally upgrade your hardware. “We considered going door to door with a bag of parts, but we decided to do it with some code.”
Battery life varies by the model that you choose — if all you do is install Mavericks to the new 13″ MacBook Air, you’ll get an additional hour of web browsing and an hour and a half watching iTunes video.
Enhancements to the systemwide graphics system — particularly on integrated graphics. CPU is combined on same die as GPU, sharing same system memory. In past, OS X set aside a static amount of memory. Mavericks can allocate a variable amount of RAM to the GPU. High performance no matter what you’re doing.
