Really odd to read your comments regarding relative speed. I would have said exactly the same thing - but reversed. I have used Lightroom since the first beta and Aperture since its release. Aperture has always been extremely frustrating to use because of the constant "hangs" while it tries to do something. Lightroom, on the other hand, works well even on rather low end gear (eMac 1ghz G4 768ram). My work machines are Macbook Pro 2.16ghz Core2Duo/2gigs ram and Dual 2.0ghz G5/Radeon x1600/3.5g ram. Lighroom and Aperture behave the smae on both. Clearly there are "other" factors here.
