Many folks (but not all) are unhappy with LR4 performance. Some are running old hardware but others are on fast machinery.

It's a puzzler. There have been hundred of posts over in the Adobe forums and it still hasn't reach any kind of insight or conclusion. See for example:

After 43 thrilling and nail-biting pages, they started a new thread here:

Thanks for the informative links.

They explain a lot of what I've already experienced myself. I'm one of those folks you're referring to re new fast system but occasionally pokey LR performance.

Your second link leads to this one, which seems to sum up the performance problems and suggested solutions.

It doesn't address a slowdown issue that I've encountered when viewing heavily edited RAW files in soft-proof.

Maybe Victoria Bampton will write a new book entitled, "How to make LR stop crawling."
