i'm on firefox.
my SSD when opening files and folders doesnt seem to lighting fast but its anymore slow/faster then my desktops. So i dont exactly see this as an issue.
i do diskcleanup and disk partition often enough.
I might do a format on this with win 7.
how much is this mini worth... with the 32gb runcore and 2gb ram... i've recently used the mini10 and i love the keyboard VS my 9. this is one of the main reasons why i dont spend a lot of time on my 9, the " ' " key is a DUMB location and the shift bar on the left is far too little for me.

As far as being sluggish is concerned it is surprising, you should see what I would call normal performance if folders are opening normally then it is unlikely the SSD is causing the problem and more likely the browser/connection is the cause.
Like I said my mini which I got in November 2008 running 2 gig, 64 gig SSD running the same clean installation of XP Pro I placed on it back in December 08 for work runs fine - run all the same office apps as you use FF for browsing and it is no different than my M6400 for browsing speed.
While I am no apple fan I have been impressed with the performance of OSX - and now prefer it over win 7 which I was running on my other (kids) mini 9's so may be an option for you & is cheaper then win 7.

My mini came with XP and was ok, upgraded to 7 and it was a very nice improvement.
I bought OSX Snow Leopard last night at Best Buy and installed it today and am very surprised with how quick it is. I use my mini for browsing and playing avi files.
It boots up in 35 seconds.
