OSX Mavericks is here, and its FREE!

On Tuesday, the 22nd, Apple released the 10th version of its ground breaking OS X operating system… Mavericks.

And whats better is, OS X Mavericks is being given to everyone with a mac for FREE*, as a free download from the Mac App Store. When upgrading to Mountain Lion, the last version of OS X, it would have cost you £13.99 (cheap enough).

But Apple announced that starting with OS X Mavericks, users won’t have to pay to upgrade ever again! Thanks Apple 🙂

Mavericks brings whole new apps to your desktop, adds features, and introduces technologies that help your Mac perform even better – while using even less power.


Microsoft released Windows 8.1, its free upgrade of Windows 8 last week, in an effort to remedy problems and complaints in the original release. However, new installations of Windows 8.1 cost from £99 for the basic version to £189.99 for Pro.
