Hi,

 

Okay, I have a MacBook White 13'' Late 2009 Model. I have installed Mavericks 10.9. The MacBook has 4GB of RAM and SSD installed. Whenever I run Football Manager 14 and Chrome with 3 tabs open the MacBook runs really slow. In Chrome I can't even scroll down a page. But when switch to Windows the MacBook runs perfect. Photoshop open, Football Manager 14 open, Chrome open and everything is smooth. Why is this happening? Should I switch back to an older version of OS X?

snow leopard should fly...

 

btw probably games slow down the machine cause they could be running with cider or wine.

Latest update for Mavericks already installed. I think it's Football Manager that's causing all the problems. I see on the Activity Monitor it's CPU load is 150%! On windows runs smoothly though.

I noticed that mavericks is sluggish on Core 2 Duo machines!!

Works fine on core i-series though!!

In Core 2 Duo, install Snow Leopard. It's a good system.  ;)

it may be insufficent memory. have a look at activity monitor. if your mac needs to use swap, it will slow down really bad. mavericks 10.9.3 runs well on my hackintosh with t7100 core2duo and 4gb but i don't play games with it ;)

 

mavericks uses 3,6 gb in idle for me (airserver + apache running)
