I wasn't having trouble with my 7200 RPM Hitachi, but went ahead and applied anyways. Have you been having trouble with yours TonyMontana? I'm pretty sure we have the same drive. Smile

Actually, we have noticed that our mini seems to pause once in a while for no reason.

Let's see what happens.

Same here with a WD Scorpio Black at 7200rpm while surfing and opening applications from time to time. It doesn't really seem consistent. What kind of drive do you have?


It still has the factory 80GB Hitachi in it.

BTW, I ran software update and did not get any hits.

Yeah, it's just for the 2009 Mac mini. That's really strange that you're having them with an older Mac mini. I never had an ounce trouble with mine that way. In fact, I thought they were more stable machines. Hard drive problems seem to be way more prevalent on Nvidia-based Macs.

Perhaps Apple is going to further segregate updates ie, security, performance and who know what else. This is just 1.0 and I guess they felt it fit under this category.

They already have ones security, but that's fine with me. I mean, as long as they don't get vague with the descriptions. I would also like to see them start combining some of these darn things. Maybe have a specific day of the week that updates are released on. It seems like every other day now I'm turning on my computer with another update showing up. So how about "new product" Tuesdays and "update" Wednesdays? Smile

Almost getting as bad as Windows Smile I guess you could always turn off auto notification. It would be nice to see some sort of a schedule, but on the other hand I'd rather get an update as soon as it is ready. Can't really win.

Didn't mean to ignore, but I had to watch the season premier of 30 Rock. Smile

True. I don't think it's getting as bad as Windows, but it's getting pretty annoying. But like you said, they should continue pushing out security and critical updates as soon as possible. You know, like that little one in SL deleting data after logging into guest accounts. It would be nice to combine the iTunes, iWork, iLife, QT, Pro and others in some manner though.

I wouldn't feel left out. That just means your machine is running properly. Cool

I think I hear my hardrive more. I never even noticed it before it was so quiet. Could be a coincident like maintenance things going on. I guess I will see, or more like hear in time.

What was the bargain price g5g5? I'm looking for an inexpensive 7200rpm drive for my new MacBook Pro and it doesn't have to be high capacity. At the moment, my best option looks to be a Seagate momentus 7200.4 320 gb drive for about $75.

We got ours for around $52 from Newegg with a code and rebate. Tony might be able to help you.

I updated my 09 Mini and late 08 MacBook Pro, no noticeable difference, but then again I've not noticed any hard disk stalling.

Same Macs now, same story. This problem must have been extremely isolated.
