Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

CNET
3 December 2011
  • Summary: Though it's not a complete system or interface overhaul, Mountain Lion's improved core apps and new features make it well worth the $19.99 price.
  • Cons: Game Center, while finally available for Mac, still only has basic features. Dictation sends your voice to be translated at Apple servers, so you can't use it while offline. Gatekeeper keeps you from downloading unsafe programs, but it seems mostly unnecessary.

  • Excerpt: Apple’s latest cat is out the bag and ready to roar. But should you upgrade and is it worth the cash? We’ve been living with the new OS since its first beta outing earlier in the year to find out. And now that the final version is out and ready to download we can give you the lowdown.
