    Hello guys.

    Can a daily 10 SMC and PRRAM resets due to some issues i have with OS X Yosemite after upgrade hurt my mac hardware?

    Um, perhaps a better question would be, what issues are you having that would need 10 SMC and PRAM resets a day?
    Solve the issues, then the question about resets goes away

    Let's start at the beginning...

    It's not going to hurt the machine, in and of itself.

    With that said, it's better to figure out what's happening. First off.. What machine do you have exactly? What specs?

    While it's not been my own personal experience with Yosemite, others have reported it being fairly buggy for them - especially wifi issues. It could be software, or it could be related to your router. Same goes for the lag...

    We need to know what your working with.

    I have had this issue when connecting to generic routers never to my airport though. Resetting the system in that way could be solving the issue because your just disconnecting and reconnecting to your router.

    Revert back to Mavericks and stay there until El Capitan release.

    Yosemite did have some wifi issues at the initial release. Are you running the latest version?
