    2012 old fashioned MBP here. It has an SSD that I put in plus 8 GB RAM I also put in. Updated to Yosemite tonight and biggest mistake ever. Beach ball every other second, pages crash, my computer is practically useless! :(

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Try a clean install, i.e not through the app store....it might fix the problems.

    How do I do a clean install when I've already installed it?

    Download the installer from the App Store and use DiskMakerX to create a bootable Yosemite installer in a USB stick.

    Start up from the USB stick and open Disk Utility to erase the internal drive.

    After that, install OS X into it.

    Is it possible it's the SSD I installed? It's a Samsung 500 GB EVO.

    It's possible regardless of any third party hardware you have installed.

    Plus 1 for a clean install. It helped me out tremendously on my mid 2011 iMac.
