said by not quite right:
I was going to get the OWC Electra, but Fry's had a smoking deal on the Samsung 830 Series 256GB SSD. Between that, and 16GB's of RAM my Mac Mini just flys through everything I throw at it! I now wonder if I stick a regular HD back in as well Mountain Lion will treat it like a fusion drive?
Which Mini do you have? Same deal here, have a mid 2011 I5 Mini, picked up the same SSD as you and upped the Ram from 8 to 16GB and this thing flies. Everything happens about as fast as I click the mouse button.
The Mini was very sluggish with the stock 5400rpm drive in it. I never realized how bad it was until I bought a 2006 iMac on here for my son with a C2D in it and it seemed to run circles around my Mini.
