Is it only Aperture that seems very slow compared to your old machine?

If so then then I agree with suggestions that the problem is to with faces or previews which can take a long time. The Activity window in Aperture will show you what ut is doing in the background.

No not only Aperture. It seems generally to be slow on all programs compared to my Dual Core Macbook Pro. Someone suggested that the Mini with Mountain Lion hates running on only 4gig RAM so I am going to increase it to 16 gig and see what happens.

I think that the cloning (Migration Assistant) which I did from the Macbook could also be contributing to the slowness. I probably inherited fragmentation, etc, from the Macbook.
