Name: Gabrielle Messineo
Location: Silverlake, CA
Hardware: 13” Macbook Pro Unibody 2.26Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo (Mid-2009)
Job: Upgrade Operating System to Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion

Job details:

1. Backed up entire system to ensure nothing was lost in the upgrade process.

2. Installed the latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion. Upgraded her system up from 10.5 Leopard (2007), to 10.6 Snow Leopard (2009), and now to 10.7 Lion (summer 2011). She can now take advantage of the Mac App store and all the great new gestures available in Lion.

3. Restored her entire system including documents, music, pictures, movies, network settings, etc. to the new Operating System. Everything was restored exactly as it was.

4. System Optimization. Installed all available software updates, repaired all disk permissions, verified the health of the Hard Drive, and emptied the trash.

5. Freed up Disk Space. All Macs need a minimum of hard drive storage to operate smoothly. Her Hard Drive was almost completely full, which could lead to a host of problems. The installation of Lion is much smaller than Leopard so I was able to free up an additional 8GB of hard drive storage, giving her a little more breathing room.

6. Exterior and Screen cleaning. Everyone loves a clean Mac!
