Hi Mitch,

I run the same versions of Mathematica and OS X on a MacBook pro and  
it seems very stable.

I have experienced rare "spinning color wheels of death" .

This has been very rarely in Mathematica and mostly using SuperDuper for backup.

  This seems related to intermittent  hardware (maybe firmware)  
problems with my WDMyBook 1TB drives.
