I been using my MBPro as my daily use. For business purposes, I would like to use my Late 2009 Mac Mini. I would utilize this for web design, graphic design and possibly video editing for Youtube. Since I upgraded the iOS to Mavericks, I noticed my Apps taking forever to load. Doesn't matter if it was TextEdit, it wouldn't be an instant open like it used to be. Even if i utilized the App "Cleanmymac 2" or try to open only 1 app (with nothing else in the background), it stills takes a while to load. I almost pulled the trigger on using my BestBuy Credit Card to buy myself a 27" iMac. But after thinking it over, I don't need to spend that much and put myself in debt even more. So after doing some research, I figured that I should just upgrade my Mac Mini. ***This Mac Mini has only 2GB of Memory. Specifications say only a max of 4GB, but i read that people are maxing out on 8GB. Would you guys recommend this? If so, Exactly what kind of Memory should I buy? ***What is this SSD or Flash you guys speak of (sorry for the noob question)? Would I benefit in upgrading this too? ***Display Monitor - I am using a LG L226W. I want something bigger, but affordable and worth it. What would you guys recommend? Sorry for the long post!
