    Just got done loading 8gb of ram and my OCZ vertex 2 ssd 40gb. Load Time of apps is amazing. My one question is boot time went from 48 seconds to 33. Should I be getting better. I used carbon copy to clone drve and I'm only using 14 gb of the 40 that's there. Any suggestions or help will ne appreciated. I domhave to say these setup screams at certain jobs. I love it

    I've got a similiar setup, but with a kingston SSD and 4GB of ram. My mini boots in 27sec's. So yours maybe a touch high, but it depends where you start and end the timing I suppose.

    My '09 Mini is in my sig, and even with three external HDD's, I boot within 8 seconds.

    Mine with 8GB and a OWC 40GB SSD goes from start of gear wheel to dock in 5-6 seconds. I use a Momentus XT 500GB as second internal drive.:D
