    My mac mini is acting up during video playback, realy slow, freezes skips frames, and sometimes even safari gives me the spinning blue circle. I upgrade d to Lion and still same problem. Tired quicktime/vlc. There are low def files.
    Thank you

    Try installing 10.7.1, that may fix the video stuttering.

    are you streaming the files from the web like youtube? or are they local files? if they are local, are they on the SSD or a different drive and how full is that drive? have you checked activity monitor to see if something else is slowing you down? do you have many page outs? have you repaired permissions recently? what are the specs of the SSD (model number, max read/write)?

    we need more info

    Some install Intel RST and it has been reported that if stutter occurs to disable the LPM. (discovered this when enabling AHCI)
