    I currently have a base mac mini (2011) with 1 vertex 2 SSD and a 1tb HDD. I am looking to upgrade the SSD to a crucial M4, would i notice a big difference?

    I'd say, in general: no.. But it depends very much on how you use the computer :) Lots of heavy video coding?

    I really doubt you'd notice any real difference... unless you count a higher Geekbench score as a noticeable difference...

    Didn't think there would be a huge difference. Thanks for the info
