Will aperture 3.4 performance be compatible on an early 209 3.06 dual core iMac with 8GB RAM...???


It works fine on my late 2011 Mac Book Pro, but concerned about its performance on an older iMac.

    The CPU on your 2011 MBP has a Geekbench score something like over 10,000 while the 2009 iMac has a score of ~4000. The 2009 box also has a much poorer GPU.


    That said, with 8 GB RAM it will work. However you should expect significantly slower performance than the MBP.

    I totally agree, and with MP stocks going to zero some places around the world I do not think it will be all that long before we see new MPs and likely a price drop on older MPs.
