→ Cody Fink responding to Thomas Brand on Free Mavericks

The first Mac I purchased and the Mac I’m still using is a polycarbonate MacBook, a laptop that’s been far surpassed by today’s MacBook Airs, yet still a computer that has plenty of life in it and is certainly capable enough for writing and browsing the net. It’s going to be a five year old computer this year, but I’m not sure if I’m really ready for another big purchase. Lion is the latest OS that will run on my machine, although I’m mostly content with that.

I am in the same boat as Cody. I have a Black Macbook that I put a SSD in that still runs really well. Unfortunately, I cannot upgrade its OS past Lion due the compatibility decisions Apple made between Lion and Mountain Lion. No matter how cheaply Apple prices Mavericks, I will not be able to upgrade that computer.
