I have a 15” MBP (circa 2009), with 8gb of memory and a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive. Generally speaking, it is a very snappy system.
Until I get to Aperture.
Right now I keep getting the beach ball of death when I do things. These are not processor intensive things like batch changes. It can be ticking a view, changing a preference, pretty much anything. Then I may get the beach ball for 5 minutes to hours (if I have that much patience).
how would y'all suggest going about troubleshooting what the problem is?
The library I'm currently working with is small. 2500 images.
