This may be a question more for the Hardware Forum, but I'm hoping that some Aperture 2 users on this forum can help. I'm looking to upgrade my MBP 2.2 GHz Intel computer. Aperture has been beach-balling me more than I like.

Am I better served upgrading my 2 gb memory to the max 4 gb, or upgrading my 5400 rpm drive to a 7200 rpm drive? A couple of points: I will be doing both eventually (probably within 5 months of each other) but don't have the money for both now. My current hdd is only half-full so space (and any increased speed by additional drive space) may not yet be an issue. My thoughts about a new 7200 drive is more a write speed issue.

Will I gain in more Aperture speed with more memory or a faster write speed onto my drive. Thanks.
QUOTE Thanks
