Well here I am. About 18 months after purchasing my mid-2011 Mini and I'm begging Apple for a way to "downgrade" to Snow Leopard. Why do you ask? Well, I had no intentions of doing this when I originally got the computer. The occasional crash, restart, bug report was fine at first. It only happened once every other month or so. Then Mountain Lion came out so I figured I'd be a good Apple-ite and throw down the $20 for it. Well, that never happened. After about two dozen attempts of installing Mountain Lion (with the apparent "fix" done for each attempt), I never could get past the following message: "This copy of the Install OS X Mountain Lion application can't be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading. Delete this copy of the application, and go to the Purchases page of the Mac App Store to download a new copy" Okay so no Mountain Lion for me. Fast forward to the past couple of months. My computer now crashes, restarts, and bug reports at least twice a day. And sometimes after the restart my mouse will just start going crazy and random crap starts getting clicked, opened, shut down, etc. So I have to keep restarting until everything finally goes back to normal; until the next crash, reboot, bug report inevitably occurs. I have been in a constant email chain with Apple for a while now (since the Mountain Lion install fiasco), and I have officially requested to go back to Snow Leopard. I still have a white MacBook from 2008 with Snow Leopard that has been the most flawless machine I have ever owned. Oh how I long for my Mini to perform with such stability. I'll keep y'all updated on how this goes.
