Macbook 2010 & Yosemite
Hello I have a late 2010 Macbook Pro with 4GB Ram and i5 processor. It was running fine until I upgraded to mavericks when it first came out and that slowed the machine. I am thinking of upgrading to Yosemite however hesitate that it will slow the machine down more. Want to get feedback and if if it helps performance to upgrade.

Re: Macbook 2010 & Yosemite
Adding RAM is what will make or break you. Your i5 will power through Yosemite just fine. If I'm not mistaken you can upgrade your MBP to 16GB @ DDR3 speeds, and the difference will be night and day coming from 4GB.
The only other realistic upgrade to consider would be installing an SDD as your primary boot drive and replacing your SuperDrive with a storage bay to house your existing hard drive for storage purposes. I personally kept the SuperDrive but the SSD made a big difference as well. Between the two my 2011 MBP 13" w/ an i5 runs things perfectly.
