I have a 2009 macbook and have never upgraded to snow leopard. Will upgrading to snow leopard and then to mavericks be worth it or make my mac slower?

    I have a 2009 MacBook Pro as well and I have a policy of always installing the latest version of System X. I am running Mavericks without any problems as far as I can tell! It takes quite a while to start up from scratch, but I never normally close my Mac down. I just put it to sleep if I want to give it a rest, but otherwise I just close the lid and open it again when I want to start up again.
    Of course you need to put it on charge regularly but apart from that just put it to sleep or close the lid!!!
