iMac mid 2011 2.5Ghz Intel Core i5
Installed extra RAM to 12GB 133 MHz DDR3
Operating on OS X Lion 10.7.5

Mainly used for browsing, currently Safari 6.1.6

Have avoided upgrading OS or Safari because have experienced few problems to date and am
not that savvy.

Should I upgrade to El Capitan? And anything else I need to know!?

I would appreciate any advice. And I really mean that.

El Capitan might feel a little bit slower on the stock HDD in your iMac. However, if you want to use Safari, I recommend updating because the Lion version 6.1.6 is getting old and lacks the improvements added in newer versions.
