so why does apple recommend such beefy computer specs for aperture? i know that's for "optimal use," but there must be some things that your PB chokes on, like applying some filters or something...besides just being a little slow, are then any major hiccups? keep us posted. thanks.

    I think you'll have a better experience with the G5, for sure. And as I further explore the program, I'm sure to hit a bump in the road or two. But after day one, I have to say, I'm rolling along...

      From what I can see of my 90 min with Aperture, it was designed around future hardware, not the wheezing stuff that's available today. It was created well, with lots of thought - today, there's just a bunch of "just missed the mark" features, like the file name import, color space, hot area illumination, etc. It's usable today on a Powerbook, but it'll be limiting - especially as you say, screen real estate.

      Derrick, how many images/projects have you got in your PB? 15,000 from a rapidly failing iPhoto library?
