What OS would you run on a MacPro5,1 2.8Ghz with 8GB of RAM?
I’m very out of the loop, not currently operating anything beyond Mavericks, but have just snavelled the abovementioned (!), hopefully to arrive within the next week or so, but it’s coming with no OS - as such I’m working with a clean slate, so figured I should look at what would be the best option.
I’m guessing the answer is going to be High Sierra - IE go with the latest possible, given that the machine is still compatible. But are there any benefits to aiming lower… Indeed - what does High Sierra offer that makes it worthwhile?
Hold the horses…
everymac.com: In addition to being one of the categories of Mac listed above, it also needs to be running OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) or higher prior to installation and have 2 GB of memory installed.
Ahh - All good - I have a drive with Mavericks on it. Will just have to clone it onto the drive I decide to use as the system drive.
