Aperture nearly unusable on quad-core 2.6 GHz Retina Macbook Pro
Feb 5, 2013

I'm afraid I have to give up on Aperture. Every time I go through pictures it takes about 5-15 seconds just to jump to the next. Editing is almost impossible. What puzzles me is that neither the RAM nor the  CPU is maxxed out -- not even close. In fact I'm using only about 1 GB of RAM and 15 % of the CPU while doing this.

Mac Genius claims the problem could be that I've migrated my account over across several generations of Macs, and recommended that I start a completely new account from scratch without migrating any old settings. Is this true? 'Cause it would take me weeks to get everything (including compilers and various software libraries that were a pain to install) back the way I want it to be.
