Boosting Aperture 3 Performance

There's an excellent discussion about performance expectations with regard to professional Apps in the Aperture Installation, Setup and General Usage Forums.

This guy, Kevin Doyle, who ever he is knows his stuff. And he's apparently spent a significant amount of his own time trying to help the forum members in that thread. It's over 9 pages in length.

While I do a number of things he's already mentioned, I had never tried defragging. I bought iDefrag based upon his recommendation. And the results? Fantastic! Aperture's even faster with a nice cleanly defragged volume.

So if you read that forum thread, and were hesitant about iDefrag, don't wait. It's worth every penny.
