    I seem to have a lot of spinning beach balls.

    MBP 2016 with 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7. Running with 598 GB free of 1 TB. Docked most of the time using a Benq 32 inch 4K monitor; currently running at 1080P. I used this same monitor at higher resolution with my old MBP 2012 without this problem.

    Latest s/w not beta s/w. I received it around 30 Nov 16. I thought I would give it a few versions to see if MACOS versions would help. NADA. I have booted into Safe mode but once back to normal mode, no change. I have set up another user with minimum add ons. No change.

    I cut they system down to only a few add ons such as SwithcResX. I still frequently get the spinning beach ball with Safari and iTunes. I even get the ball with the MBP native resolution with no external monitor attached.

    Anyone seen this happening? Sadly it seems to have started from almost day one. I am glad I did a clean install when I got this computer rather than a transfer.

    Activity monitor and App Tamer did not shred any light onto my problem. DU or Techtools did not give me any hints either.
