I've had a number of Apple products over the years, but this is my first Mac. My previous PC was was an intel core2duo, and I bought it new in 2005. My problem is that from day one, my mac mini has been WAY slower than my ancient PC was? My PC had 2gb of RAM and a budget HDD, so it wasn't that my old system was fast. I am literally only using my mac mini to surf the web and download the odd movie, tv show, etc... When I try to open any program or browser, the whole thing freezes for as long as a minute. It makes no sense that it is so slow. Same goes for any task. If I open Finder, and click and drag a tiny file to the desktop for example, it takes about five seconds before the file even acknowledges that I have selected it and am moving it. Any ideas? I'm practically pulling my hair out.
