I believe this is the right forum...

I plan to purchase Aperture, but only have the MacBook 2 GHz with a gig of ram. I called apple to see if it would run well, they said simply "not to its best performance" - I asked why, they said they don't know...

Does anyone have any past experience? Please let me know - thanks so much!

I've got a 2.0 GHZ macbook with 2 GB of RAM and it ran just fine for me. I'd think it would do great with only 1 GB of ram as well. The only think I see as limiting about running Aperture on a Macbook is the smaller size of the macbook's screen; with photoediting, the bigger the display the better for obvious reasons.

What camera are you using?

I don't know about you guys, but it didn't work for me. Said my computer didn't meet minimum specs (most likely has to do with the integrated graphics)

I have a 1st-Gen 2.0GHz Macbook with 2GB of ram and it runs a little slow. So slow that I decided to use Adobe Lightroom instead.

I don't know if I'm expecting too much or if it's because I my pictures are roughly 3-5mb in size, taken from a DSLR.

The best thing to do is to go to the Aperture site and download the free trial. If it works good enough for you then buy it. If not, I high recommend Adobe Lightroom. It runs a lot faster and it's much cheaper.
