I was ready to buy a macbook, and I just heard about this that is holding me back for a second thought. Can someone please confirm? Thanks.

I don't have a MacBook or Aperture, but looking at the system requirments, it does not appear that the MB will work, or work well at all.

Power Mac G5 with 1.8GHz or faster PowerPC G5 processor; 17- or 20-inch iMac with 1.8GHz or faster PowerPC G5 or Intel Core Duo processor; MacBook Pro; or 15- or 17-inch PowerBook G4 with 1.25GHz or faster PowerPC G4 processor.
MB Not Listed

One of the following graphics cards: ATI Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition; ATI Radeon X850 XT; ATI Radeon X1600; ATI Radeon 9800 XT or 9800 Pro; ATI Radeon 9700 Pro; ATI Radeon 9600 XT, 9600 Pro, or 9650; ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 or 9600; ATI Mobility Radeon X1600; NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE or 6600; NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL or 6800 GT DDL; NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT; NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500
MB has not graphics card


I'm talking about stuff I really don't know about, so please correct me if I'm wrong (and be nice).

It will run it you just get an error every time it opens. Basically it will run just not very well was not acceptable to me.

I've heard it's actually quite capable in Aperture despite the error message. You can probably Google benchmarks somewhere.
