For the last month or so when my Refurbished MM(Late 2014) 2.8GHz, 8GB Ram, 256SSD opens-up Safari that "Beach Ball" is is spinning-away more often than not. It lasts for a few seconds and then goes-away. I bought this unit from the Apple-Online Store in June, 2015 and has been a stellar performer. However, is this the first sign that my SSD is starting to fail?? My AppleCare on this MM expires in June, 2018, so, I may take it in for a check-up if this continues with a Apple Distributor as we have no Apple Store here in Costa Rica.

How many tabs do you have open in Safari when it loads?

Have you contacted Apple support about this?
