I got a question for you guys/girls. So with the whole disappointment of the 2014 "upgrade" and the discount from BB couple of days ago I finally jumped on the deal and got a "new" 2012 i5 Mac mini. Now, all things being almost equal, here are my specs: 2009: 2GHz, 8GB RAM, and a 7200 RPM HDD. 2012: 2.5GHz i5, 4GB RAM and also a 7200 PRM HDD. The 2009 model is running Yosemite, upgraded from Maverick, and the 2012 is running a clean installed of the Yosemite. Here is my question, after a couple days of use, I feel that the 2012 model is at best AS fast if not slower sometime when it comes to doing just the day to day stuff when compared to the 2009 model. Things such as web surfing, opening up Word, Preview, just the regular day to day stuff. Of course, the most obvious hardware difference between the two machine is the RAM, one is 8GB and one is 4GB, for the 2009 and 2012 respectively. Do you guy think a merely 4GB of difference (but at the same time given the advantage of the new i5 on the 2012 model) would make that much difference as to slow down the day to day operation and makes it seem like the two machine is running at the same speed? I'm sorry I can't be more exact, but I thought that I've became extremely patient with my 2009 model already given its age. But the 2012 is certainly not living up to my expectation right now. For reference, I also tried the 2014 model at the Apple store the other day, I don't know what the exact specs are but at least the computer feels quicker and I can feel that it was performing much better than my 2009 model. Any thoughts? Thanks.
