Default Re: What version of Pro Tools would work with my MacBook Pro (early 2013)?

The last version that was approved for mountain lion is 10 which would run on your hardware, both interface and laptop.

Mac release 10.3.9 is more stable. Higher oses would be “ pushing it”
It’s up to you, if you want to take the chance of having to manually delete files in order to uninstall, then take the plunge.

my 2013 MacBook (8GB) cannot upgrade to 16GB RAM unfortunately. Its the way it's built...
Out of curiosity, what kind of audio interface are you using?

Hi, welcome to the community.

For future use, please bookmark www.everymac.com which has full specs easily available. It tells us that early 2013 RAM is not upgradeable as it is soldered to the motherboard.
