I currently have the mid 2010 model. I have the RAM maxed out. It still seems a little bit sluggish at times when I have quite a bit of things open. I know that installing an SSD would help out a little bit, but would that be a better route compared to purchasing a newer model Mini? I have an MBA that I use for school, so my Mini isn't really vital other than being what I use to store my music, photos, etc. on.
