The good: Mac OS X Mavericks brings new apps, streamlines familiar features, and improves power efficiency and battery life for laptop users.
The bad: Older features like Gatekeeper and Launchpad could have used some renovations, but were left untouched in Mavericks.
The bottom line: As it's a free upgrade that gives you more apps, improved features across the board, and better performance, there is really no reason not to get Mavericks on your Mac.Read CNET's Full Review Fall Tech Preview
