    Hi all

    I was going to order Aperture to run on my Imac G5 to handle all my photography that i am now into, just as well i checked the minimum specs on the Apple website. It say's a 1.8 ghz processor or faster.
    My Imac is only 15 months old and already i cant run some of the latest software on it. Its a 1.6 ghz G5.

    It makes my blood boil oh well Apples loss, come on Adobe hopefully you will get lightroom right and i will buy that instead.

    Is it just me or is anyone else angry when things like this happen.

    Apparently you don't totally understand what Aperture or Lightroom are really made for. Real time RAW processing is not the same as playing around in iPhoto or even RAW processing in Photoshop. It requires sifting through and processing large quanities of image data each time you view an image. I have tried both Aperture and Lightroom and neither are are impressive from a performance standpoint on my G5 2.0ghz... The chips are still having trouble keeping up with the software. Just 15 months months ago real time RAW management hardly existed... much less were there machines capable of running it with decent performance. I've seen guys with quad g5s complain about the performance.

    Times change... get used to it.

    I wish I knew the specs of the machine I watched the aperture "sales demo" at the apple store was. It seemed to go pretty quick there.

    Lightroom just came out with an update, I have not tried it since downloading the update. It does a fine job, but is also slow.

    New servers, much faster than before
