mid-2012 mini running 10.11.6 w/8 gb of ram. system drive is less than half full. disk utility finds no problems yet everything is delayed- when i type, there's lag-time before my keystrokes show up on the screen. double-clicking to open a folder takes upwards of 20 seconds before the folder opens. same thing if i'm trying to mark check-boxes. the simplest of tasks take forever. i'm getting the pinwheel quite a bit too while online. my only guess is bad ram but i don't want to jump the gun and buy something i don't need to. looking to see if anyone has other ideas/suggestions.
