Have you managed to install Mavericks yet to your Mac computer, courtesy of Apple and their free download this year which has taken many consumers by surprise? If you haven’t updated, you should give it a go, but now we have a video to show you, giving you the option of a clean install of Mavericks from a USB drive.

For the easy option, you can just go to Apple’s website and install the software over the top of your existing version of Mac OS X. It’s a very easy process and doesn’t take long at all depending on your internet connection and how fast you can install a 5GB file.
