    MacBook Pro 2012 - SSD upgrade - which OS?

    So I just upgraded my 2012 MacBook Pro with an SSD and 16gb of RAM. It is currently on Mavericks, which version of Mac OSX would be best to run on it?

    High Sierra. It is considerably smoother and keass if a memory hog than Mavericks. In any case you have no choice. Its the only macOS available as Sierra was removed after the release of HS.

    I would agree....your 2012 model is compatible with the latest macOS, High Sierra, so why run anything else?
    'Deep Thought' - Mac Mini Late 2014 - macOS Sierra (10.12.4)
    'Orac' - MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 - macOS Sierra (10.12.4)
    'Marvin' - Hackintosh - Mavericks Server (10.9.5)
    'Holly' - Hackintosh - Mavericks Server (10.9.5)
