I have a Mac Mini that is really slow - almost to the point of unusable even though it has 8GB RAM and a dual core i5. Realistically I think it is the disk i/o and I will soon switch it out for an SSD (but it'll take hours to take it apart and put it back together again and I'm lazy). Sidebar : Check out this step-by-step guide to replacing HDD with SSD[^] -- you basically rip the entire Mac Mini apart and rebuild it.
