Can anyone tell me, what is the difference between OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client and OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client combo?
Which version is advisable for Updating my MAC OS X in my MAC Book Pro?
Thanks in Advance...
Significantly, by applying the Combo Update, which I have always done and always advise others to do, you are basically updating the original system from the ground up, for want of a simple explaination, whereas the Client Update that usually surfaces in Software Updates on your computer, is more like a 'top up' update and after a few of these updates, your computer may slow down a little and not be as responsive. For the extra few megabytes, always download and install the Combo Update from the Apple Support Downloads site.
The difference is that the 'OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client Combo' is used to update from a version that is more than one version below 10.7.4 and the 'OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client' is used to update from a version that is exactly one version below -- i.e. if you are on 10.7.2 or below, you should use the 'OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client Combo' but if you are on 10.7.3, you should use the 'OS X Lion 10.7.4 Client'. However, the easiest way to update to 10.7.4 is by using software update which can be run by doing this:
To get updates immediately, follow these steps:
- Choose System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
- Choose Software Update from the View menu.
- Click Update Now.
- Select the items you want to install, then click Install.
- Enter an Admin user name and password.
- After the update is complete, restart the computer if necessary.
