>I see the same issues the guy in the article has seen. Basically, I have a total of 8GB of ram in this here mac mini, and when my desktop session gets heavy things start going south. For example: Let's take a large Chrome session (~150 tabs spread over several windows), an IDE open somewhere, Spotify, Steam and some background apps, and a small Windows VM.

150 tabs? A VM? An IDE?

That's just A LOT. Of course things will go south, what did you expect a magic machine that can run everything and whistle away hapilly with 0% load?
