    I just got Aperture 2 and it's pretty cool.
    My new Uni 2.53 GHz 4-gig/ram Model seems to be working pretty hard whilst editing and converting 12 MP RAW files from my 5DMk1.
    The fan really revs up periodically, and it takes a bit of processing time. Is this normal? I'm not sure how much system resources Aperture 2 takes up. What are your experiences?
    Thanks

    You can't exactly expect everything to compute instantly...

    Coming from an old 1.4Ghz Toshiba with 1.2 gigs of ram, I thought it would at least feel instant. ;)
    But, I suppose with the passing of time, newer programs require more muscle to push those pixels...:cool:

    Even an octo-core Mac Pro will take some time to process RAW files.
