Episode 1571 (1:25:02)

LeAnn from Lake Elsinore, California
macOS High Sierra

LeAnn has an older Mac laptop that she wants to upgrade. Leo says the best thing to make your old Mac faster is to get an SSD drive. Adding more RAM will boost it as well. Should she downgrade to OS X Sierra? Leo says that High Sierra is actually faster, so there's no need to downgrade. But make sure to back up the existing hard drive before changing out.
