  • I haven't tried that but no research has suggested it.  Per what I read, the noise is coming from the ports on the comp, the cord, the enclosure.  Plus, the newest, noisiest item is a plastic body ...
  • I think an iPad/tablet is in my wife's future as she hardly used her iMac anymore, but we'll see.  She's always on her phone...might never even look up to see the iPad sitting there...waiting! If ...
  • JP; yeah, I never got into the gestures, except for the swipe up and down for scrolling; that one seems very natural, and works a lot bette than the little ball ever did in my previous mouse. ...
  • L&P; well, I've actually gotten used to and like the magic mouse, but I'm a bit of an odd duck in that I don't use/have a cell phone and 'gestures' aren't part of my typical experience. I like ...
  • Well, from what I've learned, 2.4 GHz IS the BT frequency and that's what usb3 is putting out, hence the interference.  USB2 doesn't do this.  So, it's not the mouse that is the problem, it's the ...
  • JP; oh, I agree completely re the blutooth.  I hadn't really gone over to full usb3 peripherals yet because I've been nursing the last out of my fw400.  But to help my mini, I asked and it was ...
  • L&P; here's a couple of links; https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/external-drive-causing-issues.1492414/page-2 https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/more-mac-mini-bluetooth-woes.1493433/ I ...
  • L&P; yes, I have; that was one of my sources for research/info.  Seems the problem started with the mac minis of that day (same year as mine) and then came back with the MBPro later in 2015.  It's ...
  • Created discussion thread BT interference, Mac Mini, shielding
    I've researched this a lot and really other than not using either a BT mouse or the USB3 peripheral, I haven't seen a real solution (I suppose those ARE real solutions but thought I'd ask the ...
  • Thank you for further ideas.  For now, I think I'm going to try the ssd externally.  I figure the mini is getting older and using the internal drive for anything is probably a short term idea.  ...
  • Thanks, JP; I'm leaning toward the 250/240 as the price differential (about $20) isn't that much but the total storage is double. Ubele; Thanks for your experience.  What you outline IS similar.  I ...
  • wow, thanks for all the suggestions, guys.  I figured you would all have ideas I could use.  I'm leaning toward just getting the external ssd and booting from that as I don't use it that much, ...
  • Created discussion thread ssd for late 2012 mini?
    I'd like to get an opinion on whether adding an external ssd to my late 2012 mac mini would show a great improvement in speed.  I began using it mainly as a media center/server but find I'm often ...
  • I use an online converter... http://convert2mp3.net/en/index.php
