Let me start by saying I don't know anything. My Mini has. Always felt sluggish and I read I could test it with Geek Bench. I tried and I'm scoring significantly lower than everyone else even after going to 8GB RAM. Mac Mini (2011) 2.3ghz i5 (The number is the geekbench score) 6000 - Average result on Geek Bench Comparisons for exact same machine 5100 - Mac Mini after 7mo use 5100 - Stock Mac Mini after restore 5300 a Mac Mini after making 8GB RAM So does anyone have a clue on why It would be slower than everyone elses? The only heavy app I use is aperture and it's agonizingly slow. I've tried the memory upgrade and bought a FireWire 800 drive but it's still very slow. Thanks!
