But the Aspyr team have now feed it what they’re calling “a good speculative profile of system requirements” so it can predict whether your machine will be happy on the new OS, or rebel.

As Aspyr’s GameAgent blog states, Mac Match can only guess whether or not your Mac will be able to run Mavericks. But it’s an educated guess, based on info already out in the wild.
