I have (well had now) a Late 2007 17" MBP, and I have a Late 2011 17" MBP. I had no problems installing Mavericks on either one of the systems. Of course, the Late 2007 system (2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM) is a lot slower than the Late 2011 system (2.4GHz Quad Core i7, 16GB RAM). I upgraded the Late 2011 ayatem from Mountain Lion, and I installed the Late 2007 system clean using a USB stick created on the Late 2011 system.
