    Downloading now - Can anyone remind me how I get the file out of the App store so I can save it and use it on my other iMac?

    Mine's currently copying to a usb drive, going to clean install and then copy important files back from Time Machine. Seems to be taking an age to copy files to the USB3 drive though.

    If anyone wants the terminal input (assuming the installer is located in the default Apps folder):
    Code:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/[COLOR="Red"][B]USB[/B][/COLOR] --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app
    Just change 'usb' for the name of your external volume. I like my simple names :p

    I just upgraded last time via the app store and I'm debating doing the same this time round, laptop has always been nippy and fast, can you time machine back over wifi?

    Seems a bit nippier in places....

    Beachballed a few times when I first loaded Safari but all okay now. Full screen - split screen is very nice and looks great. Cant tell too much else.... Oh I played around with shaking the mouse to point it out.

    Bed time now :)

    P.s. It surprised me that it was a 6 Gb download too... I thought it would be about 3 Gb (on par with previous installs)

    Would be interested in hearing how this runs on a Core2 Macbook. Not sure whether to go for this or call it a day at Yosemite, which is still fairly usable.
