    Did the upgrade option, not clean install and it's driving me mad. Keep getting the spinning ball all the time no matter what app I am using. Safari is worst culprit but it does it in Finder and Mail and Wi-Fi drops out as I am listening to Spotify and the music stops for 2-3 seconds then comes back on. Same with YouTube videos. Really annoying. Is clean install the way to go or should I wait for the next update. Any idea when that is incoming?

    I'm with you on this one.

    I have similar issues and I have a similar mac.

    Anyone else care to join the party?!

    You've rebooted your router?
    You've tried messing around with wifi off to see if the beachballs still show up?

    On another thread I posted someone replied:

    so have just tried that. See how I go

    Yes, unplugged router from wall and back on again. Macbook Pro with Yosemite is perfect and PC I have has had no wi-fi dropouts.

    It's been doing it for over a week now. Indexing completed days ago.

    Then its not an indexing issue and the patch is not going to help. This is often cleared by adding more memory but your configuration seem to have more than enough memory. A clean install would be the next thing to try.
