The other day I tried combining multiple PDF's into one with automator and it was taking so long to process. It wasn't even a lot of documents.

Whats the best way to combine multiple PDF's into a single documents with either automator or another application?

there's a few I could recommend, as I do plenty of this these days (adjusting my resume and folio for job hunting)

Search for these at a site like

PDFlab - this was the first I used, but when I put it on my macbook, it had a few issues. May not be intel yet.

Combine PDF's - worked like a charm. Easy to use, and gives great file sizes. I don't think I could find a better app out there, and it's for free! It's very fast on my macbook, so it should blaze through any task on your macbook pro.

I used PDFLab to put together chapters for a book last summer. Worked great, and it allows individual pages to be added/removed in the resultant PDF, which is fantastic for editing PDF files.
