Re: New Mac Mini is sooo slow

I might be wrong but I think that Migration Assistant does not transfer data in such a way that fragmented files are recreated on the new Mac. You can confirm it by running iDefrag; it costs nothing to use it to analyze your files. If you do have fragmentation the Aperture library is a likely culprit; it can really slow down your Mac.

Like I wrote earlier, 4GB RAM is insufficient for what you are doing with your Mini. I have a Mini and I used MA to transfer files from a 2011 MBP. Prior to upgrading the RAM to 16GB it was not a speed demon; the RAM was maxed-out and it is quite speedy.
