    Does it use the CPU or GPU to process? My next iMac purchase will be influenced by this. Aperture is my primary computer task.

    Both. That is why I got an rMBP with a dedicated GPU. A few days ago i imported 56,0002 images into Aperture in one batch. No problem.


    With luck at WWDC Apple will be announcing many things. One of those just may be when Aperture 4 or X will be released. The capabilities and requirements for that new release could drive your next purchase.

    Did I sabotage myself by getting this configuration? Things seem to move along briskly in Aperture, even with the NIK plug-ins operating,

    I'm using Aperture on a 2013 MBA with the integrated Intel 5000 graphics and have zero performance issues with Aperture. Your iMac with a more powerful CPU and GPU both should be even better than my setup. You will be fine.

    Yeah. I am not a hardware junkie, and am satisfied. And I certainly don't have envy for the folks who boast of 32Gb of RAM. Thanks

    But in matters concerning Aperture, there is an information vacuum. Only three books are published on the software. And no news from Apple about forthcoming revisions of v3.xx.

    I got this book and was happy with it. Covered all the basics of Aperture pretty well.

    I hope you are right. I am getting concerned Apple has abandoned us Aperture users. :(
