Engadget Review

Like the last few upgrades, Mavericks doesn't do anything particularly bold, but a slew of new features (and zero cost to download) make the upgrade worth it.

Pros
  • Free
  • iBooks and Maps now available on the desktop
  • Productivity features like tags and tabbed windows
Cons
  • OS X is feeling a bit stale these days
