Aperture or Lightroom for Macbook Pro?
Feb 21, 2013

I've got a Macbook Pro with the following specs:

Model Name: MacBook Pro

Model Identifier: MacBookPro6,2

Processor Name: Intel Core i5

Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz

Number Of Processors: 1

Total Number Of Cores: 2

L2 Cache (per core): 256 KB

L3 Cache: 3 MB

Memory: 4 GB

Processor Interconnect Speed: 4.8 GT/s

Will Aperture or Lightroom run well enough on this machine?  Apple, this is one of the reasons why free demo versions are important...  I'm not going to be doing huge numbers of photos.
Are there any good comparative reviews between the two?  I've tried googling but most of the links have one side out of date and they're mostly just name-calling and "why I hate/switched-to/love X" rather than real reviews anyway.
