    Recently I've noticed that my mac mini seems to be slowing down. are they any good utilities for cleaning up a mac? I didnt expect this to be an issue, but maybe it's just me irresponsibly trying out a lot of mac software and not knowing how to totally remove it from the system, and other newbie mistakes like that ;)

    Names of utilities would be great, and of course, if there's anything free out there, I'd love to give it a shot.

    Any other tips on increasing the performance of my mac?

    I feel like this may definetly be a culprit. I have 90/320 GB free right now.

    Thank you for both of those utilities :) They helped very much. If there's a mod out here, I would recommend starting a sticky of useful mac utilties/tools that apply to everyone because of how they affect system performance.

    Also, I feel like 4GB of ram is plenty for me, I do some casual gaming on both Mac and Windows and some basic home video editing. Nothing too complicated.
