comment Why is Aperture changing the color of my RAW photos?
To the best of my knowledge, this is simply Aperture's failure to understand the camera setting info embedded in the RAW files (Picture Styles as @lindes is calling them) and then effectively discarding that info. What I figured out is that if I open my RAW files in Nikon's Capture NX-D, the color looks perfect. So I've decided to open all of my RAW files in Capture NX-D, and export them as 16-bit TIFF files that I can then import into Aperture. Sadly, these TIFF files are 4× the size of the RAW files, but that's worth it to me for correct color.

So what exactly is the fix? It's not clear from this answer even though it was selected as the best answer.

comment For maximizing photo adjustment performance, which hardware upgrades matter most?
Thanks for the answer, @JohnThomas. When I say "upgrades," I don't mean upgrades for an existing computer. Rather, I mean upgrades over the base model while configuring a new computer, so the CPU/GPU answers are exactly what I'm looking for. Knowing that, would you change the ordering of your proposed upgrades?

@dpollitt, that question is three years old and most of the answers suggest getting an SSD. You can't get a Mac without flash storage, so all of those answers are irrelevant.
