In that case...be prepared to suffer the "first edition blues" as the unforeseen issues in their design process come to surface!
sorry for double post
Putting a laptop sized hard drive in the mini was the biggest mistake. This limited its overall storage capacity. If you want external storage though, why buy a mini when you can buy an external hard drive (network drive or hook it up to AirPort extreme) with tripple the capacity for half the price? The mini was never an attractive computer given that the iMac represented a better value package. If you wanted to buy a 20" or 23" display, it was really too underpowered...

Tell us what apps you are running and we can respond. The spinning circle suggests deep system-related activity like virtual memory activity. OS X doesn't tend to suffer the same crippling slow-downs as Windows though a regular (once a month or so) system clean does seem to help prevent degradation in performance. There are plenty of system maintenance utilities that help to keep your system lean and mean. Try a full system clean with "MainMenu" and see if that...
My understanding Is Bootcamp doesn't like to install Windows unless you only have one partition on your hard-drive...unfortunately, the only way around this is to completely back up your OS X partition and re-install it after combining all separate disk-utility partitions into one. BootCamp uses a flexible partition system on the Mac OS X partition. This is a hassle but is the only way around your current situation. Maybe the Boot Camp that comes with Leopard won't be...
