I have an old MacBook Pro (mid-2010) and I am currently running Mountain Lion. Due to lack of any type of support (I cannot install most new versions of applications), I think about installing a newer version, but I don't want the most recent as it will slow my computer down too much. Ideally I would like to upgrade to Mavericks.

I saw a similar topic, which unfortunately doesn't answer my question (as I have never installed my desired version with my Apple ID):

How can I download an older version of OS X?

Is there any way I can do this?

    Take a look at this answer. It looks like you can't even download Mavericks anymore as Apple has removed it. – fsb Dec 18 '17 at 21:54
  • I'm not sure how the linked question doesn't answer this. It states that if you don't have it in your purchase history you will need a friend or a torrent. – Tetsujin Dec 19 '17 at 8:02

If I were you I'd just get it from torrents since you basically own a copy anyways. Easy.
