Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked but I'm getting a lot of difference answears to my question. I have had macs for years now from mac book to retina iMac. I have just bought a Mac mini, only the base model and the performance is so slow. I know it's not a high end mac but just loading up iTunes or photos takes an age. I have only installed the apps last night so it's still doing its thing but after reading a lot of posts, people are saying it's the hard drive that's the problem. Is this true? Will I do a big performance jump with a ssd installed? As I say I'm only using it for iTunes and photos. Many thanks for your help in advance.
