I have my MBP 13 2011 upgraded to 8GB Ram and 180 SSD, running Snow Leopard. I am a music producer, using laptop as a portable studio (having the same stuff on studio's Mac Pro and my MBP), therefore stability and compatibility with a third party AU plugins ( I use Logic Pro 9) is critical.
I also use MBP to surf the web, make contracts, invoices and for other paper work that need to be done. Heard that a new safari 6 is only available for 10.7 & 10.8, and that the current version of it on SL (5.1.7) has more than 100 holes. I love safari very, very much and cannot get used to hangs of Chrome while opening new pages neither memory leaks of the Firefox. I wonder if there will be some Safari 6 or whatever that will have all the wholes fixed?
Forgot to mention, I need Snow Leopard due Rosetta.
This is not exactly a reply but the same problem of incompatibility I am facing after upgrading my Mac OS X Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 version. The Safari 5.0.6 fails to be invoked. So after reading the messages on this forum it looks like I would be knocking my head against the wall if I tried anything to make them both talk to each other. Or do some geeks may still contrive a solution, failing which it looks like I will have to migrate the system to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
It is understandable that one has to go with the flow but also infuriating that manufacturers have unwritten short termist convention as regards their support policy of providing after sales upgrades.
