Apple today released the final build of the OS X El Capitan on the Mac App store which consists of a rather heavy file of 6GB. The easiest way to switch to the latest iteration of the Mac OS from the Cupertino giant is to update from the present version of the OS running on the MacBook.
However if you are planning for a clean install of the OS, you can always download the 6GB file from the App store and create a Bootable USB pen drive. In case you pondering on how to make a bootable pen drive, just download a free software called PowerISO via which you can make a bootable pen drive in flash.
The latest iteration of the OS X El Capitan comes with a no of improvements from its previous generations. The notable one include the presence of a Spilt-Screen Window Management, Mission Control and improved pinned tabs support for Safari. Apple has also updated their native OS X El Capitan apps including the Mail, Maps, Note, Photos and most importantly the Spotlight search.
