Hi all

What significant or useful functions would I miss out on if I purchased a 2012,2011, or 2010 MBP and installed Mavericks?

Cheers

Only thing I can think of is video mirroring to an Apple TV - you need the newer hardware, otherwise I'm with John - 2009 MBP runs very well.

Cheers so far

Airdrop is MBP late 2008 or newer
Airplay Mirroring is MBP early 2011 or newer
