Got Mavericks installed on the MBP. Everything works so far, including the Office suite, which is what I was particularly worried about because I use it every day. I haven't had any problems at all--but then I've been using it for all of five minutes, so who knows. Like Curtis said, though, everything seems a whole lot faster than before. Safari is super fast. I know--the new OS placebo effect. But that's ok with me too.
