Mac Mini question
For the past year I have been using a 2009 mac mini, 2.53 GHz, 320 GB Hard Drive. OS 10.8.3 and Aperture 3. I keep my Aperture library on an external usb drive (500 GB) and use a usb 1TB time machine.
Recently loading pics from CF card, raw conversion, and adjustment seems to be taking much longer. As does uploading to SmugMug or emailing.
I have the kit from OWC ( and the skill) to place the 500gb drive into the optical bay and to double the RAM from 4 to 8 GB.
Does anyone think this will make a difference in perceived speed?
