    Being my first post Pls be kind.
    I just bought a new mac mini i7 2.3 with 4gb ram ,2012 edition. Never used mac before so it was a big decision not only as a concept but as a badjet since I bought also a Dell monitor. still having dell 7110 laptop with win7
    All so far very good response for Bluetooth keyboard and Logitech mouse recognized out of the box .
    Two days ago it show me the option to upgrade to yosemite .
    I thought, OK 2014 OS it should be better than 2011 (?) and I upgraded.
    I have lost the very good response and the mac mini became slow.
    What should I do ?downgrade to mavericks? Or upgrade the ram ? (Expensive option)
    If downgrade to mavericks how should I do that?

    Thanks for your time and sharing your opinions

    Your best bet would be to return to Mavericks.
    This can be done with what apple refers to as an "Internet Recovery"
    Scroll down the page a bit to "Internet Recovery".

    Did you read my previous post regarding trying an "Internet Recovery"?
    Apples Internet Recovery will install the Operating System version your Computer originally came with, and can be initiated by starting your computer while pressing the Command+Option+R keys.
    Give it a try...

    Should I proceed further than the logo screen of yosemite?

    As I posted above, the keys you need to press are "Command+Option+R"

    If things go right you should see a 'spinning globe' indicating that an internet install is about to start, it is slow so be patient.
