Lightroom CC and New IMac

For several years I have been using Apple Aperture on a Macbook Pro for editing photos.  I am now plannng to get a new 27-inch iMac and use Lightroom CC for my photo editing.  Can anyone offer experience on how well Lightroom runs on these Apple iMac computers?  

 

Many thanks,

It should work fine. We have a 2012 iMac with Sierra and have no problems. Get 8GB or more memory and SSD.

BTW, Adobe has an Aperture importer that will pull in all your Aperture library images... but what I found is that it's really pulling in the original RAW files but not the adjustments.  

 

I still have Aperture on my Mac (so that I don't have to readjust all those images) and do everything new in Lightroom.

All,

 

To add an udate to this thread, I now have a new iMac (27”, 500 GB SSD, slowest processor), and Lightroom CC.  It works really well, and seems quite fast.  So far I am really liking Lightroom CC.  The transition from Aperture hasn’t been difficult.  One thing I particularly like in all of the training resources available for LR.
