I use adope but I'm just not a big fan of it, I feel like it lags. Are there any other PDF viewers?
Preview (included with OS X) has had great performance for years.
Preview which is part of OS X is probably the best one.
But can I modify the PDF in preview? For example write notes on it?
You can add annotations, highlight, arrows, and more.
You can't edit the original content, but it does have annotation capabilities.
I thought so, alright does anyone know of any alternatives I can use to edit and anicdote PDF files?
The App Store literally has tons of apps if you search for "pdf editor", just be sure and read the reviews.
Adobe Reader can't edit PDFs either, so perhaps your initial question/subject were a little misleading if you were also wanting something that could edit them.
It's expensive, but it's probably the best PDF editor out there.
I guess I'm lucky with Adobe Reader performing like a champ on my 2011 MBA i5/4GB/128GB. It's silky smooth even with 1000+ pages of colored textbooks and a file size of 100+ MB. I can also annotate with Adobe Reader and no slow down or anything. You probably need SSD on your MBP since I notice that really large PDFs loads a lot slower and a bit choppier on my friend's cMBP. My only gripe with Adobe is that it uses a lot of RAM (400 MB or more) when a large PDF is opened for a while.
I use preview sometimes but prefer Adobe's interface.
