        While limited, the operating system of this MacBook Pro is upgradable from its pre-installed MacOS X 10.9 (13A2093) up to the latest MacOS X. The model can also host the Windows OS 7 and accommodate an operating system which is as high as that of Windows 10.

        It is pivotal to choose the right RAM at the time of initial purchase because it is not upgradeable. This is already made clear by Apple during their configuration process.
