Hi there. First post on here and a very recent Mac user. I've just bought a Mac Mini, the middle spec one; 2.3GHz Mac mini Specifications 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 4GB memory 1TB hard drive1 Intel HD Graphics 4000 OS X Mavericks I mainly wanted it to do Photoshop CS6 on, but also internet and maybe the odd bit of video editing. I use a Nikon D7100 and am shooting RAW files which are mainly what I want to edit within photoshop. I've literally had the machine a few days but so far I have to say am a little underwhelmed by its performance. Yesterday I was listening to music with my Google Music stream, and also doing a little photo editing. Any tasks I tried to do the music would stutter, I'd get the beachball now and again and generally, file previews etc do not seem swift at all compared with my Acer laptop which should be lower spec in theory. Am I expecting too much of the machine in its base spec? Do I need to shove in an SSD and 16gb Ram before I can expect it to handle such things? To be honest, I'm so far not overly impressed with Apple, and the pain of having to get used to a new OS coupled with performance lags is making me think about sending it back (I have 14 days from delivery) Can anyone offer any thoughts or advice about my expectations for this machine? I'd appreciate some help. Cheers.
