Mid 2012 MacBook Pro >Best version of MacOS and Logic?



Recently the hard drive failed on my Mid 2012 MacBook Pro (not Retina display) with 8megs of ram. I’ll be able to recover the data, but as long as I’m rebuilding things I thought I’d ask:

Prior to the breakdown I was running Logic 9 with Mac Mavericks OS; I think 10.9. Should I stay there, or could I upgrade Logic and MacOS to something newer without sacrificing performance?

I don’t want to upgrade things to the point where things would be slowing down. As it is, I could only run a handful of Spectrasonics plugins before maxing out. Your thoughts? Thanks!!
