    OS for new/used MBP

    Hi guys,

    A few months ago my aging MBP died. Too old to bother to repair. I just got a 2012 15" MBP from OWC/Macsales. It is 10.6.8 right now, can load and run Mavericks if I want.

    I've been loading applications from an external that had my old MBP HD backed up.

    First glitch, I like NX2. I haven't been able to get it from the external to the new MBP. It says I need an installer.

    10.6.8 is too old for NX2 from the Nikon USA site so no installer.

    Should I bother trying to find 10.7, 10.8 or just go to Mavericks.

    I also plan to get LR now that I can run an OS new enough to do it.

    Opinions on Mavericks?

    Thanks

    Neil

    Thanks, I'll bet I do the Mavericks download. I could then fire up NX2 which is also free as is Mavericks.

    I also see that for $9.99 a month I could have PS and LR. I qualify for that offer.

    In either case I need a newer OS than 10.6.8
