I recently purchased an M1 Mac mini and was Initially blown away by how fast it was at first.
Like most systems, the performance is awesome until you start adding software.
Now it’s running incredibly slow.
I’ve done all the normal things about checking activity monitor, spotlight indexing, virus checkers and cannot find out why it’s running so slow.
I know that in Windows if you have multiple devices connected that sometimes that can consume system resources as it maintains the connection to all those devices. I was of the understanding that it is not quite such an issue on the Mac operating system.
I’ve spoken with Fujitsu while trying to get my scan snap I asked 500 working and they have indicated that there is hardware has problems with the USB connection.
I’m not sure where to go from here and if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
I will attempt to run EtraCheck Pro to gather some more data.
What other data can I collect that will help the troubleshooting process?
