Last thought.... if Aperture can only be installed and run from one computer with one set of data/photos/videos... maybe that's OK for the main computer and your current iPhoto is adequate for the limited use that the old computer will have... exchange photos over your home network--ie, export from Aperture/iPhoto of new and import into iPhoto of old (not the easiest, but may be adequate for your needs...)

Glad you're loving the iMac, makes me jealous...


It's really grand :)

I was of the initial understanding that Aperture is a download now, and as such, it would appear on every machine.

This confirms it.
How many computers can I install Aperture 3 on?

You may download and use Aperture 3 for personal, non-commercial use on any Apple-branded products running Mac OS X (“Mac Computer”) that you own or control.

If you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, you may download Aperture 3 for use by either (a) a single individual on each of the Mac Computer(s) used by that individual that you own or control or (b) multiple individuals on a single shared Mac Computer that you own or control. For example, a single employee may use Aperture 3 on both the employee’s desktop Mac Computer and laptop Mac Computer, or multiple students may serially use Aperture 3 on a single Mac Computer located at a resource center or library. For the sake of clarity, each Mac Computer used serially by multiple users requires a separate license.
