    This is the newest mini from Apple guys/gals. $400 and it is yours.

    Disclaimer: even though it is the newest model, it will take forever to boot up and load anything you want. It takes like a minute to open a web page and around five minutes to open JRiver.

    Whoever buys this should do the simple upgrade to more RAM and an SSD, makes a hUGE difference in speed. It takes about half an hour to do both together and is well worth the money, especially given how inexpensive SSDs are now.

    I guess I will dig out the solid state drive I got from you back when... and drop in and max out the ram. Was too lazy to do it.

    This. I did the same on mine (when I owned it), and it was an incredibly easy and inexpensive upgrade.

    Something is seriously wrong then. Even in stock configuration, an application should not take 5 minutes to open.

    Now that you mention it, I am kinda curious as to why it's running so slowly. Most recent OS installed? I wonder if it's that...

    Re: spinning disks in Macs, years ago I bought the iDefrag application from Coriolis. It really helped in keeping things running nicely, even with an OWC SSD. Mixed perspectives on defragging SSDs. I notice an improvement in response, and it's definitely beneficial for spinning disks.

    What will you be using it for now, Halen?
