The initial reported spec, "a High Sierra MBP," is ambiguous. That could mean a 2010 MBP, that can be updated up to High Sierra with a third party enabler, or more likely Ces VLC meant that the machine's original and default OS from Apple was High Sierra, indicating a 2018 model, which is still supported by Apple up to current, or Ventura.

Anyway, while the names of all the macOS versions are so very cute, they inevitably waste my time because I always have to double check the name against the actual OS version number, which is the detail that matters. Up to Lion, I had them memorized. Since then I have resisted learning them all because Apple aggravatingly increased its OS release cycle and feature creep to yearly. I honestly wish there were two releases, one that included new features, and one that didn't require disabling all the unwanted and unnecessary new features.
