Hi, im a new switcher, first i have MBP 2.0 Ghz, im quite happy with it. And decided to replace my PC with mac mini. I bought mac mini intel core duo 1.66 GHz, 512 RAM. I know it's definately slower than my MBP, but i just wonder if the mini should be this slow. It'll take about 5 seconds if i point out my cursor to hot corners to load up screen saver. It'll take another 3 seconds from screen saver to show the login screen. It'll take about 3 seconds to change desktop (using Desktop manager). It'll take about 3 seconds after i pressed f12 to bring the dashboard. But that is just for the first time, the second time will be normal (e.g. after wake up from sleep, i change the desktop, it'll take 3 secs. After that it'll be normal. After a while using the mac, but not using desktop manager, and use it again, it'll back to slow again, as well as the dashboard etc, the second time i access it, it would be normal speed). Is everybody's mini like this also?
