I had a 2014 mac mini with regular hdd, it was so infuriating to use, I couldn't believe how ridiculously slow that thing was. The issue was random slowness/hiccups. That 30 sec delay sounds like what I was getting. So I plugged in an external usb3 ssd, and used that to bypass the internal hdd. Night and day difference.Not sure if the company will do this. It seems their policy is just to replace the machine with a new one when its time to upgrade.
