    My mid-2010 15" MBP has been pretty dependable over the last six years. Last year I maxed out the RAM and put in an OWC SSD and now it feels like a new machine. Luckily I haven't had any graphics issues, but it has frozen a few times in the past year.

    It was running Snow Leopard up until a few days ago. Under SL it froze twice last year, both times while using FireFox. I had never had any problems with it up until that point. I finally got around to updating it last Friday to El Capitan. It froze once while running Safari and then today (after updating to 10.11.5) it froze when I woke it from sleep.

    I know there have been some freezing issues with El Capitan, but I almost wonder if it's something else since I had it freeze in a different OS as well. What could be causing this? Other than that issue, I've been loving El Capitan so far.

    Lot of people are having the same issue with El Capitan.
