Slow Mac Mini SSD Upgrade
Most customers we have these days who complain about their mac computers being slow, first think they need to clean their computers up from viruses. Or reinstall their software. Or even buy and come to ask us to install some extra memory for them.
All those things are ok and in some cases necessary to do. But…
What many don’t realize. Is that the reason their computer is slow. It is only because they still have an old spinning hard drive in it.
Now this applies to all macbooks before 2013 (we don’t get many of those anymore, cause they are just getting too old to use in most cases).
It applies to mac minis before 2015. And all imacs before 2019.
When you have an old spinning hard drive in your computer as storage device. Where your mac stores your operating system, along with all your files. That data is being read at pretty slow pace.
Back when these were THE ONLY thing. They were great. Yet the also came in different speeds. 5400RPM, 7200 RPM and even 10000RPM (rotations per minute). they were an amazing piece of technology that helped store loads of data and changed computer industry, as well as music industry (when steve jobs figured out how to put one in your pocket and walk around with thousands of songs on it that you can listen to on your ipod).
However, these days, as technology progressed and flash memory devices emerged- USB sticks, SD cards, etc.
Manufacturers also started producing flash memory drives called SSD’s (Solid State Drives) to go into computers.
And if you will compare read and write rates of a SSD to a regular 5400RPM hard drive. They are usually 10-15 times faster.
So if your macbook or imac or mac mini is running slow. First thing you need to do is to find out, whether you still have an old hard drive inside your device. And if you do, that’s the first thing you need to replace, to see a major difference in how your mac operates. It will be like night and day. You will be literally amazed how fast your imac can run without doing anything else to it, except by just replacing old hard drive with a SSD.
