Upgrade Mac Mini 2007 or Buy another newer used? 2013

Message par  le Jeu 31 Jan - 4:00

2013 2013 2013 here</a>), need some of you Mac tech experts' opinion/advice on the followings:



1. Should I upgrade the RAM to 2x2GB + HHD or just get another newer used Mac Mini?



2. If upgrade, what brand & specific make/model of memory are the best choices out there & at what price range is normal to pay?



3. If buy another newer used Mac Mini, which year/make would you recommend & what are the pros/cons?



I use Mac Mini as my secondary daily reliable usage home computer - mostly for browsing, media center, editing software (i.e. Photoshop, Fireworks & maybe looking into installing a few more of web design related software when I get the money to buy more). This Mini is on DVI & USB 2.0 connections, it's been running slow (with the rainbow pinwheel keeps showing up & running forever) & is still using OS X 10.5.8, so I'm not sure if it's worth that extra $$ to replace it w/a newer used Mini or just spend a little upgrading the RAM + the newest OS X available now? I'm always running low on hard drive storage, so I have a budget set aside for a HHD or SSD either way - I'll be doing this for sure whether I upgrade or buy another used Mini.



UPDATE: If I buy a newer used Mini, I'd prefer to get one that still has disc slot/combo drive built into it - just easier when loading music CD & DVD movies as well as making a customized playlist onto a CD or burning backup date/software discs w/o more external hookup via USB to an optical drive. I think the 2009 ones are the lastest that still has a disc slot/combo drive built in... any suggestion which model/make of the 2009 or other years of Mini to get? Thanks!



Any or part advice/suggestion would be appreciated! =)</div>
