 From all I have heard, yes you want one of the FAST Macs to handle 
Aperture.  I got a new MacPro 3 gigs or RAM, Aperture and FinalCut all 
at the same time and all I can say is WOW this baby is FAST.  The only 
thing I want to add is a real kicka** video card, the one standard is 
very good, but I was told when I got the computer to get the upgrade as 
a lot of Apertures "work" is done on the video card.  As I add more 
images and work on larger projects I can tell.  Instead of the changes 
being instant they take about 1/2 a second to show up now.  I got 
spoiled and want the extra speed. :)  Plus I use two monitors so I 
figure a second card will only speed things up more.

I really like this MacPro...I highly recommend getting one. :
