Talking Aperture on any Mac!!(and more new features) Version 1.5

From Apple's site:
http://www.apple.com/aperture/

Supporting every member of the Mac family, Aperture 1.5 runs on every desktop — from Mac mini to iMac to Mac Pro — and every notebook — including both the MacBook and MacBook Pro. So you can run Aperture at home or in your studio. And you can take all your photos with you on location or to a client’s office. Aperture and the Mac make one unstoppable team.

Sync to iPod: Take your photos with you by using iTunes to sync your entire Aperture library — or just selected albums or Smart Albums — to iPod

Pause, adjust volume, manually step backwards/forwards through slideshows using the Apple Remote that comes with most new Macs.

Browse and present slideshows — even with images stored offline — thanks to the new Automatically Generated Previews stored in the Aperture Library. Aperture lets you customize both the size and quality of the previews.

More new features:

Any Mac? Hardly.

Any Intel Mac? Sure. iBook owners forget about it, and anyone else with something a year old or more shouldn't bother because Aperture is a huge consumer of RAM and processor power.

The iBook didn't ever ship with any of the compatible video cards and the screen does not provide enough workspace (1024x768).

I think the late model 12" with the 9550 should have enough horsepower to be able to run it if it is not locked out by Apple. It may work with a larger external display. I would expect some sort of hack to come out to allow it to be installed on unsupported hardware.

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple relaxes their requirements, based on them allowing MacBooks and Minis to be officially supported. Hopefully they let the user decide for the themselves whether or not Aperture is worth running on their hardware.

The title should've read any currently shipping Mac.

The system requirements have jumped up. Any Intel Mac is fine, but PPCs now require a 1.25 Ghz G4 or faster (used to be 1Ghz) and the 12" PB has been cut from the list of working Powerbooks.

Does this mean it will work on my iMac?

I have an older iMac G5, with a GeForce 5200. If I'm not too fussy about speed, will the new version of Aperture run?
