I used to see beachballs and the need to re-start occasionally too.
Haven't once since the new hardware. But maybe it's an "order of complexity" thing. Be interesting to see whether whatever new MacPros are in the future make a commensurate difference to what I'm seeing in older laptop tech vs the latest laptop tech.

It's also likely the super fast SSD is making a perception difference for me. Seems like waiting for anything is now a thing of the past. Note I currently keep smaller projects on the SSD and do larger projects via USB 3 externals because that's what I have currently. With dual Thunderbolt 2 ports on the MBPro, I'm sure I'll be seeing a throughput boost there as I migrate my storage devices to the new TB buss.

It's been known for a long time that X does seem to LOVE the latest and fastest hardware you can afford.

Now if they just keep the prices on external SSD's falling I'll be happy.
