Apple's new desktop OS 10.11 "El Capitan" promises better performance, new and refined features, better security and compatibility. That's the promise. What's the reality?

Mac expert, Dave Hamilton of the Mac Observer and Mac Geek Gab, will show us what to expect with demos and tips. We'll see what works well, what's improved, what needs help; Dave's take and real life experience will be presented with clarity and humor. Will "El Capitan" really prove to be the "Snow Leopard" of the new Mac 64-bit OSes? Come to the meeting and find out.
