Hello All, Just bought my first Mac(mini). A coworker was selling 2011 i5 with 4gb memory at a decent price so I picked it up. Anyway I want to install an SSD drive in it replacing the 500gb HDD. I just ordered some additional memory from Amazon. After doing some development work on it last night, it begin running really hot and really slow so it confirmed my "need" to install an SSD drive. I am looking at getting one of two drives: 1)SAMSUNG 830 256gb or 2)OCZ 256GB Vertex 4 -256gb -comments on either or both are welcome . I was going to use the current drive as an external backup drive. I don't plan on installing a ton of stuff on the SSD as MacMini is mainly going to be used for a development box. With that said, my biggest question is what is the best way to get OSX, either Lion - which is currently on the HDD, or upgrade to Mtn. Lion, on the new SSD? Should I pull the current HDD drive out and image it to the new SSD? OR I have read/seen people installing OSX image to the new drive via a jump drive? Better option? If so what's the best way to get the image on the jump drive? Thanks, in advance for any and all replies.
