    I would love to use numbers so to take advantage of iCloud as well as maximizing the look on my ipad when I use that to show spreadsheets. The problem is that my sheets are large with a lot of calculations and numbers runs incredibly slow. almost 5 seconds just to click on a square. I have a 17" macbook pro 2.3 gz i7 quad core, 512 sad and 8 gb of ram. is it my computer or is pages just very slow compared to excel?

    I haven't found it slow for what I'm doing YET but I just have two tables going for some data entry. What I do notice is my 2012 Macbook gets hot when using it. I checked out the activity monitor and every time I start entering data my cpu goes up to 85%. :|

    Its not doing any calculations either...

    Yes, Numbers is quite slow. It scales VERY badly, so it gets much much slower the larger the sheets get.

    It is my main grief with Numbers.
